"While the aircraft was descending at Jaipur, pilots were informed by Jaipur ATC of suspected tyre burst at Dubai. The crew followed their procedures and landed safely at Jaipur," a SpiceJet spokesperson said.

"Passengers were deplaned normally. The flight was uneventful," the spokesperson added, clarifying that no "emergency landing was carried out at Jaipur."

The aircraft is being examined by a team of engineers.

Last year, in a similar incident, a SpiceJet aircraft with over 200 people on board made an emergency landing at the Chennai airport on February 9 after one of its tyres burst during take-off.
