After two tires of an Air Canada Airbus A330 burst on landing, passengers were forced to exit on the runway at Montreal International Airport.

On Saturday, two out of ten tires on the Airbus A330-300, registered C-GFAF, punctured during flight AC901 from Fort Lauderdale International Airport to Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. The plane was carrying 93 passengers and ten crew members.

Passengers disembarked on runway 06L, causing the plane to be crippled. The incident resulted in no casualties or injuries, and the plane was safely removed off the runway.

An Air Canada spokeswoman told CTV News in an email:

“Upon landing at Montreal shortly before noon, two tires were punctured preventing the aircraft from driving to the gate.”

An investigation has been launched to look into the incident in depth.
