A SpiceJet flight from Delhi to Mumbai eperienced a tyre burst on landing, but the plane landed safely on the runway.
On landing, after evacuating runway, one tyre was deflated. No smells or smoke were noted. "Aircraft was parked at allocated bay as advised by ATC," a SpiceJet spokesperson stated.
The representative further stated that the captain felt no abnormalities during the landing and that passengers departed normally.
SpiceJet received a show-cause notice from the DGCA on July 6 after eight occurrences of technical fault since June 19.
DGCA ordered SpiceJet on July 27 to run no more than 50% of its summer flights for eight weeks.
The airline would be subject to "increased surveillance" by the DGCA during these eight weeks.
The low-cost carrier claimed it had cleared all outstanding primary dues of the airport operator earlier this month.
In 'cash and carry,' the airline pays the AAI daily for navigation, landing, parking, and other charges to run flights.
