Dibrugarh: Two tyres of an Air India flight from Kolkata to Dibrugarh burst while landing at the Mohanbari airport in Assam'sDibrugarh district on Saturday, but all the 90 passengers on board were safe, airports authority sources said.

After the flight landed at 12:15 pm two tyres of the Boeing aircraft were found punctured, the sources said.

As there was no facility at the airport for repair of the tyres, engineers from Kolkata were flown to Dibrugarh for rectifying the problem, they said.



The flight scheduled to leave at 12:45 pm took off for Kolkata via Dimapur only at 3:30pm.
