The passengers of a Delhi-Srinagar IndiGo flight had a close shave as a tyre of the plane burst while landing at the airport here on Monday, an official said.

"The IndiGo airlines flight No.6E with 160 passengers on board was landing at the airport in Srinagar when one of its tyres burst on the runway," a police officer said here.

The pilots, however, were able to land the flight safely, thereby averting a major tragedy, he added.

Airport officials said the IndiGo flight from Srinagar to Delhi would now take off only when all technical checks are done to ensure the plane's airworthiness.
