A Norwegian Air Shuttle Boeing 737-800, registration LN-DYA performing flight D8-5360 from Tenerife South,CI (Spain) to Berlin Schoenefeld (Germany), was accelerating for takeoff from Tenerife's runway 08 when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed and came to a stop near the end of the runway with both right main gear tyres burst disabling the aircraft on the runway. The passengers disembarked onto the runway and were bussed back to the terminal, maintenance replaced the tyres on the spot.

The runway was estimated to remain closed until about 19:30L (19:30Z), for about 10 hours, as result of the occurrence.

AENA, airport operator, reported that the passengers disembarked onto the taxiway, the tyres need to be replaced in the spot as the aircraft can not be towed with the blown tyres. The runway is estimated to remain closed until 19:30L though they hope to finish the repairs earlier and get the runway back into operation before 19:30L. As result of the occurrence 15 incoming flights will have to be diverted to Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Tenerife North.

The airport and runway resumed service about 4 hours after the rejected takeoff, when the aircraft could be moved off the runway.
