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.
