Speaking to the media, airport spokesman Reese McCranie said that passengers were removed from the plane, and no injuries were reported.
Atlanta-based Delta said in a statement that Flight 5508, operating as Delta Connection from Atlanta to Tulsa, aborted its takeoff around 9:22 a.m. Wednesday after two tires deflated.
The airline says passengers got off through the main cabin door and were returned on buses to the terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says the agency will investigate.
