In Brief: Jet tyre grounds passengers

Pub Street's PTM Travel and Tours, the ticketing agent for Australia-based Jetstar Asia, had a taste of international aeronautical drama last week when a plane was grounded for a day following an incident. As has been widely reported, a Jetstar Asia flight from Singapore had one of its main tyres cut when it momentarily veered off the runway while landing in rough weather at Siem Reap last Thursday morning. PTM's Siem Reap ticketing manager told the Post that passengers waiting at the airport to board the plane for its return flight to Singapore were also grounded, and taken by bus to Hotel City Angkor.  "Jetstar paid for their lunch and they were then also provided with overnight accommodation," the ticketing manager said, noting that a handful of complaining passengers were rerouted to new connecting flights for free. peter olszewski
