A passenger plane sustained serious tire damage during its landing at the Edmonton International Airport shortly after 5 p.m. Friday night, WestJet has confirmed.

No one was injured on WestJet Encore flight 3362 from Fort McMurray, carrying 70 passengers, but a thunderstorm kept them waiting even longer.

Because the airport was under red alert for lightning shortly after landing, the plane was unable to taxi passengers back to the gate until it was lifted for safety.

“Tire damage does happen from time to time upon landing, taxiing etc.,” said WestJet spokesman Morgan Bell in a statement.

While there was a delay, all guests and crew were safely offloaded and WestJet anticipated that all of the passengers would be able to make their connections Friday night.

“Safety is our top priority and we sincerely apologize to our guests for the delay and any inconvenience this may have caused to their travel plans,” said Bell.

The aircraft, a Bombardier Q400 turboprop plane, has been removed from service for further inspection from WestJet’s maintenance team. Two other flights – WS3125 and WS3198 – have been cancelled due to limited aircraft availability.

WestJet is working on accommodation options for guests affected by those cancellations. The company apologized for any inconvenience this may have caused.
