Breaking news Indian Passenger Plane Lands In Pakistan After 'Light Malfunctioning' SonDakika-Haberleri.Net
Spice Jet Airlines says Dubai bound flight landed in Karachi due to malfunctioning indicator light.
A passenger plane of India's Spice Jet Airlines bound for Dubai was diverted to Pakistan's Karachi city on Tuesday due to a malfunctioning indicator light, the airlines said.
According to a statement, the plane landed safely in Karachi.
"SpiceJet B737 aircraft operating flight SG-11 (Delhi - Dubai) was diverted to Karachi due to an indicator light malfunctioning. The aircraft landed safely at Karachi and passengers were safely disembarked," the company said.
"No emergency was declared and the aircraft made a normal landing," it added.
"There was no earlier report of any malfunction with the aircraft. Passengers have been served refreshments," the statement said, adding that a replacement aircraft is being sent to Karachi that will take the passengers to Dubai.
In March, a Qatar Airways flight from New Delhi to Doha was forced to make an emergency landing in Karachi after it developed a "technical fault."
Presently, there are no direct flights operating between India and Pakistan, as the relations between the two countries plummeted to a new low after August 2019, when India scrapped the longstanding special status of Jammu and Kashmir, resulting in Islamabad downgrading its diplomatic ties with New Delhi. -
