A Spicejet Boeing 737-8 MAX, registration VT-MXJ performing flight SG-36 from Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) to Kozhikode (India) with 191 passengers and 6 crew, departed Jeddah's runway 34C. After becoming airborne the crew received an anti-skid indication, but decided to continue the flight. The crew was subsequently informed that tyre debris had been found on the departure runway. The aircraft continued, climbed to FL330 and later FL350. Upon reaching India's coast the crew decided to divert to Kochi (India) due to a hydraulic system indicating low pressure. The crew performed two low passes over Kochi's runway 09 to have the gear inspected from the ground and subsequently positioned for an approach to runway 27 and landed without further incident about 6 hours after departure.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Kochi about 5.5 hours after landing.

The airline reported tyre pieces were found on Jeddah's runway, a caution light subsequently illuminated. The crew diverted to Kochi and performed low passes to have the gear position verified. After confirmation by ATC that the gear was down the aircraft landed without further incident. The passengers disembarked normally.
