Scores of flights on Srinagar air route were cancelled on Thursday afternoon after one of the tyres of an airbus burst at Srinagar International Airport.
Sources told Kashmir Life that a tyre of Air India charter burst when it was to take off from Srinagar runway. The charter is being used by army.
“There was fire in the tyre and the air bus had to stop,” sources said, “it is stuck at one place thus scuttling the run way of other aeroplanes.”
Sources added that around 15 flights were scheduled to land at Srinagar airport but “now it is impossible”.
“The technical staff was mulling to pull the Air India charter but it may damage the run way,” the sources added.
