Dumaguete airport runway closed after PAL plane blows tire

MANILA, Philippines – A Philippine Airlines (PAL) plane from Manila experienced tire failure while landing at the Dumaguete-Sibulan Airport in Negros Oriental on Tuesday morning, August 14, prompting the closure of the runway.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said the plane, an Airbus A320 with flight number PR 2541, "damaged the left main gear of its rubber tires" at 6:31 am.

According to CAAP, all 113 adults, 2 infants, and 6 flight crew aboard are safe and were assisted by airport staff at the arrival hall.

The runway will remain closed, however, until "foreign object debris" can be cleared.

Due to the closure, 13 flights are expected to be delayed:
