A Malaysia Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration 9M-MXH performing flight MH-725 from Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) to Jakarta (Indonesia) with 61 passengers and 6 crew, landed on Jakarta's runway 25R at about 20:10L (13:10Z) but burst the outboard right hand main tyre. While attempting to vacate the runway via high speed turn off N4 about 1450 meters/4800 feet down the runway the aircraft became disabled prior to crossing the hold short line.

The runway needed to be closed until the aircraft was towed to the apron.

The airline reported the aircraft suffered a suspected tyre burst on landing in Jakarta.

On Aug 18th 2017 Indonesia's NTSC released their preliminary report rating the occurrence a serious incident.

The captain (33, ATPL, 6,101 hours total, 1,396 hours on type) was pilot flying, the first officer (35, ATPL, 5,562 hours total, 5,138 hours on type) was pilot monitoring.

While descending towards Jakarta the aircraft was instructed to enter a hold at FL220 due to heavy rain at Jakarta and traffic congestion. After about 30 minutes ATC cleared the aircraft to descend to 11,000 feet and proceed to the next waypoint. When ATC queried the crew, whether they were ready for the approach, the crew declined due to present weather conditions and requested to continue holding advising they had sufficient fuel. ATC granted the hold and instructed to further descend to 10,000 feet for the hold. About 14 minutes later ATC queried again, whether they were now ready for the approach, and considering that the weather had significantly improved with no wind shear reports by a number of landing aircraft anymore, the crew decided to commence the approach. The aircraft was vectored and cleared for the ILS approach runway 25R, visibility was reported to have improved to 2000 meters (6500 feet). The aircraft was cleared to land, winds from 200 degrees at 8 knots.

The aircraft touched down on runway 25R but immediately veered right, about 580 meters down the runway departed the right hand edge of the runway and returned to within the runway about 900 meters down the runway. The left main gear impacted two runway edge lights in the process, the right main landing gear one runway edge light. The crew declared Mayday, advised they had temporarily veered off the runway. The aircraft vacated the runway via taxiway N4 and stopped on the taxiway, however not clear of the runway. The NTSC wrote: "The aircraft stopped on the taxiway N4 with both tires of right main landing gear were burst." The aircraft was disabled on taxiway N4. Tower instructed a number of aircraft on final approach to go around due to the runway not being clear.

The passengers disembarked onto taxiway N4 and were bussed to the terminal.

The NTSC, despite earlier reporting both right main tyres were found burst in 5th last paragraph of chapter 1.1, wrote in the last paragraph of chapter 1.1: "The aircraft has minor damaged. The outer tire of the right main landing gear was burst. All other tires damaged over limit. Some punctures found on the left inboard flap and right and left wing body fairings. There were three runway edge lights damaged."
