Tyre of Jet Airways plane catches fire in Kochi
Kochi: A Chennai-bound Jet Airways flight from Kochi was aborted when one of its tyres caught fire just before take-off. All the passengers are safe.
Rafi, one of the passengers on board the plane, said that a few passengers noticed the fire and immediately informed the air hostess.
"The entire responsibility lies with the airline because as we were boarding the flight, many passengers were saying that the condition of the aircraft looked old. The aircraft was moving and was ready for take off when the fire was noticed and all the passengers were evacuated", Rafi told reporters.
Later, Jet Airways made alternate arrangements for passengers to reach Chennai.
