IndiGo Airlines ATR-72, flight 6E7117, suffered tire burst on landing at Hyderabad Airport in South India. The flight 6E7117 with 76 people on board was flying from Tirupati to Hyderabad airport on Wednesday evening.
Passengers were evacuated safely and no injuries reported. Few flights were diverted to the nearby airport as the aircraft got stuck on the runway.
IndiGo inducted four ATR-72s to it fleet of 158 Airbus aircraft last November, and launched seven additional ATR-72 flights on its domestic network from 1 March 2018.
Early last year, the airline had signed a term sheet for buying 50 ATRs, to increase its domestic network by reaching out to rural India.
