An Oman Air aircraft suffered a burst tire when landing at Julius Nyerere International Airport, Dar es Salaam, over the weekend.

The flight was carrying 158 passengers and six crew members on board from Muscat, and no one suffered any injuries during the incident.

“All the passengers, however, were deplaned safely without any injuries.

The airline has ordered a probe into the incident. The flight departed from Muscat International Airport at 7:15pm on Saturday,” said Oman Air from its Twitter account.

Officials from the carrier are currently saying that an object on the runway caused the incident.

“Possibility of an object on the runway is very little, almost nil because we inspect the runways in mornings, afternoons and evenings. We are watchful for anything on the runways,” said The JNIA acting director, Vedastus Fabian.
