Passengers of an Air India plane from Jeddah had a narrow escape after one of the plane's rear tyres burst during landing at Karipur International Airport on Saturday.

All the 369 passengers and the crew on board Jeddah-Calicut AI 962 flight are safe, an Air India official said, after the plane landed at 8.30am.

The incident occurred at the turning pad area of the runway, the official said.

The same plane is supposed to fly back to Jeddah Saturday evening.
