The flight was coming from Bangkok on Thursday when the incident with the Dreamliner took place. Fortunately, neither any passenger nor any crew member on board was harmed. The investigation is currently under process and the reason is not known as of now.
Flight TG325 from Thai Airways took off from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) at approximately 14:45 UTC and landed at Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport’s (BLR) runway 09L at around 23:32 local time which happens to be the BLR’s northernmost runway and spans just over 13,123 ft. (4,000 m) in length.
The rolling flat tire was first spotted by the airport officials at the airport either during the landing or after the landing which is not known. The pilots of the said flight were immediately informed about the situation, shortly after which all passengers and crew were evacuated from the aircraft safely without any injuries or harm. The reason behind the deflated tire or the time of deflation is not known currently and required investigation is under process.

This aircraft has been with Thai Airways since 2014. The flight was also scheduled to return, however, was cancelled for a thorough inspection for any potential damage.
