According to Fox affiliate WAGA-TV, Delta Air Lines released a statement Wednesday about the aborted flight at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, which illustrated how passengers "safely" departed the aircraft to board a new flight.

The statement continued, "Passengers were safely deplaned through the main cabin door and transported back to the terminal on buses as maintenance crews work to tow the plane off the runway. Passengers have been accommodated on another aircraft that will continue on to the original destination."

A spokesperson from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a statement Wednesday to IBT about Delta flight 5508. The FAA plans to launch an investigation into the incident.  

"ExpressJet 5508, a CRJ 900 aircraft, cancelled takeoff from Runway 8 Right at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport after the crew reported a blown tire," FAA told IBT. "Passengers deplaned via stairs and were bussed to the terminal...The FAA is investigating."

According to 2016 report Wired, airplane tires rarely have issues because of its durability. Wired reported that "The typical airliner tire can handle a 38-ton load. It can meet the ground 500 times before needing a re-tread, a refresh it can take on seven times in its life." However, Delta Air Lines has been plagued with problematic tires before, which includes video footage that surfaced in June 2011 and May 2013 of a Delta flights that experienced a tire blow out during takeoff.
