Press Release - Statement on incident at OR Tambo involving Malawi Airlines Flight no. ET20

1/14/2019 2:58:24 PM

We are getting feedback from concerned traveling public regarding the incident that happened today Monday, 14th January, 2019 at OR Tambo International Airport, involving our Flight Number ET020 from Lilongwe to Johannesburg, South Africa. We are also aware of the misinformation making rounds on social media and other online media outlets alleging that our flight crash-landed in Johannesburg due to problems with the aircraft’s landing gear. The truth of the matter is that the flight had normal landing at OR Tambo International Airport; however upon touchdown, the Captain of the flight realized that one of the plane’s tyres deflated during normal braking. As a precaution, the Captain decided not to proceed with taxing to the Terminal Parking Bay but opted to have passengers disembark on the runway. All passengers disembarked with no incident. Further precautionary procedures were implemented to tow the aircraft to the parking bay. Meanwhile, the deflated tyre was replaced and the return flight operated albeit with a two-hour delay. Malawi Airlines apologizes for the inconvenience and would like to assure our esteemed customers and general traveling public that we are committed to safe, secure and reliable service. We are still investigating the incident to establish the cause of the tyre deflation. Malawi Airlines wishes to advise its customers that the above incident is a rare occurrence and that precautionary measures are in place to prevent recurrence. For further clarification contact our Senior Public Relations Officer on 999618413/0885313011 or email at josephj@malawian-airlines.com. Signed: Hailemelekot Mamo CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER 14th January, 2019
