Srinagar: Passengers of a Jammu-Srinagar Air India flight had a narrow escape on Monday when a tyre burst during landing at Srinagar international airport, officials said.

The over-150 passengers and crew on board are safe, officials told IANS.

The aircraft came to rest in the middle of the airport's only runway, which has suffered some damage, resulting in a temporary halt to all flight operations, sources said.

All flights departing from Srinagar will be delayed, while arriving flights have been diverted to the Chandigarh airport.

"Air India fight AI821 suffered a tyre burst on landing at Srinagar today (Monday). The flight had 149 passengers on board. All passengers are safe," the national carrier said in a statement.

"Air India is working to clear the runway at the earliest and a relief aircraft is ready to reach Srinagar to operate AI822 on the return sector Srinagar-Jammu-Delhi," it added.
