A Hawaiian Airlines Airbus A330 bound for Auckland, New Zealand, aborted takeoff Wednesday afternoon from Honolulu Airport.

The captain for Hawaiian Airlines Flight 445 made the decision due to an unreliable airspeed indicator during the 2:33 p.m. takeoff, Hawaiian Air said in an email.

This resulted in the tires of the plane deflating after it stopped on a taxiway off Runway 8R, according to the email.

There were 201 passengers and 12 crew members aboard the plane, Hawaiian Air said. Passengers were shuttled to the terminal and put on another plane, estimated to depart at 10:45 p.m.

The aircraft will stay on the taxiway until the tires can be changed, according to Hawaiian Air.
