Hyderabad: A city-bound Air India flight from Delhi, with 83 passengers and crew on board, made a safe landing at the airport here this evening after an alert was issued about some tyre problem.

The alert was issued by airport authorities in Delhi after they detected some tyre pieces on the runway after the flight AI-839 took off from Delhi airport at 1650 hrs, Air India, Assistant Manager (Corporate Communication Hyderabad), Puja Kaushik said.

"The flight with 83 passengers and crew made a safe landing at 1921 hrs here. All the passengers are safe," she said.

Earlier, it was suspected that the plane's tyres might have deflated or there might have been a tyre-burst but after a thorough check-up of the plane upon its landing it was found to be a case of "de-capped wheel", she said.
