PETALING JAYA: A Malindo Air plane carrying 72 people was forced to turn back during take-off at the Subang Airport after one of its tyres deflated on Wednesday.
An airline official confirmed that flight OD1232 bound for Kota Baru suffered the minor incident while preparing for take-off.
No injuries were reported.
“We had another aircraft to carry the passengers to Kota Baru.
“The flight was rescheduled to 11am and arrived safely at 12.05pm,” the official said.
This follows an incident in March where a Malindo Air flight to Kuala Terengganu was forced to turn back to Subang after the plane caught fire while at 7,000 feet. No injuries were reported then as well.
