Thai Airways Boeing 787-8 suffers burst tyre on landing in India


A Thai Airways International (THAI) Boeing 787-8 suffered a burst tyre as it landed at Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru, India, on Tuesday.

The incident occurred at around 11.30pm, aviation news hub AeroTime reported on Thursday.

The national carrier’s flight TG 325 had touched down in Bengaluru from Bangkok and was taxiing from the runway when ground crew noticed that one of the Boeing aircraft’s 12 tires was deflated.

“TG 325 from Bangkok landed at Bengaluru and while docking into stand 05, the landing gear tyre was found to be deflated,” a spokesperson from Kempegowda International Airport told local news.

“All passengers were provided with hotel accommodation and rebooked for departure flight on April 28 at 0.30am”

All 150 passengers and crew on board the flight were unharmed.

A source from THAI added that the airline had provided an Airbus A350-900 to bring passengers back to Bangkok on April 27 and 28 on flights TG 325 and TG 326. Passengers also got the option of returning the same day aboard a Boeing 787-8 on special flight TG 3268.
