QANTAS flights in and out of Wagga have not recorded any blown tyres with one of the airline's aircraft fleets, a spokesperson has said.
It comes after it was confirmed today that the airline launched an investigation following four planes in their Q400 Dash-8 fleet had tyres burst in the space of four weeks.
This includes a Q400 plane that burst a tyre while landing in Cloncurry airport just a few weeks ago.
The next case was a Dash-8 that had to return to Canberra when one of its tyres exploded.
Then a Gladstone-bound flight had to return to Brisbane Airport when a tyre exploded mid-flight.
Then finally a Qantas flight from Mackay, which had 72 passengers on board, had to circle Brisbane Airport for 90 minutes after another tyre ruptured.
A Qantas spokesperson told The Daily Advertiser that none of the damaged tyres happened on flights to or from Wagga.
The spokesperson said that earlier this month, the company conducted tyre checks in additional to the daily routine on its turboprop fleet, which includes the Q400 plane.
"There were fewer than 10 delays across the network and no cancellations as a result," she said.
The spokesperson said no delays occurred in relation to routes to and out of Wagga.
In the Cloncurry case a Q400 suffered a split tyre on landing.
"Each landing gear on the Q400 is fitted with two wheels and the other tyre remained in working order," a Qantas spokesperson said at the time.
Qantas is now working with the tyre manufacturer to determine why the ruptures occurred.
