Emergency landing by Indigo flight
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 13: A Delhi-bound Indigo flight Friday had to make emergency landing at Srinagar ‘International’ Airport immediately after takeoff.
Over 179 fliers had to face tense moments when the airplane developed some “technical snag” and was forced to make emergency landing. “The plane developed some technical snag. Later it took off smoothly,” an Airport official said.
Security Officials at the airport said that the plane's computer warned of technical snag in mid air, five minutes after it flew from the airport.
“The pilot informed the ground staff about the suspected technical snag and requested for emergency landing,” said Superintendent of Police for airport security, Abdul Rashid.
“A local engineer addressed the fault and flight took-off again within minutes,” Rashid said.
This is third incident of its kind that an Indigo plane landed under emergency conditions in the state this year.
On June 28, a Mumbai-bound Indigo flight with 180 passengers on board had to land under emergency conditions at Srinagar Airport after a bird hit.
Earlier on June 13, over 130 passengers had a providential escape when the crew of an indigo aircraft from Delhi detected plumes of smoke in one of its engine. The pilots maneuvered to land the aircraft with much difficulty at Jammu airport.
