A plane belonging to Kuwait-based Jazeera Airways caught fire after landing in Hyderabad, India, on Wednesday, it has been reported.

Local media said one of the engines of the Jazeera Airways aircraft, carrying about 150 passengers, caught fire after arriving at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport on Wednesday morning.

Airport sources were quoted as saying that air traffic control staff alerted the pilot who shut down both the engines immediately.

All the passengers disembarked safely and no injuries were reported, local media said.

In April, Jazeera Airways announced double digit growth in both revenue and flown passengers in the first quarter of 2018.

The airline recorded an operating revenue of KD14.3 million, up 42.7 percent from Q1 2017, and a net loss of KD0.3 million, an improvement of KD0.636 million from Q1 2017.

Passenger numbers in the first three months of 2018 totalled 403,863, up 43.1 percent from the year-earlier period.
