Malindo Air, ATR-72-212A, 9M-LMF: Incident occurred February 27, 2018 at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR: A Malindo Air flight from Langkawi to Subang experienced a burst tire upon landing at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport this afternoon.

Several flights were delayed as a result of the incident.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), on their official Facebook page, said all 33 passengers on board the aircraft had been ferried to the terminal building at 5.05pm.

“The aircraft is stranded on the runway which necessitated the closure of the runway at Subang airport for take-off and landing.

“We regret to inform that there were some impact to flights whereby five Firefly and three Malindo flights were diverted during this period,” MAHB said.

Efforts to remove the aircraft from the runway were undertaken immediately to enable the runway to be operational as soon as possible.

MAHB later updated a second post saying that the runway has been re-opened and normal operations resumed at 6.30pm.
