New Delhi: Two Air India planes were forced to make emergency landing due to technical snags at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here on 9 April.
An Air India plane coming from Dubai made an emergency landing following a technical problem, the airline’s second emergency landing of the day at the capital’s airport.
The plane from Dubai had 65 passengers on board, airport spokesman Arun Arora said in a telephone interview.
“The aircraft landed at 3.15 p.m. as it had some problem in its undercarriage,” he said.
Another Air India plane, with 169 passengers and 10 crew members, made an emergency landing this morning, blocking one of the two runways at India’s second-busiest airport and delaying flights.
Flight AI349, bound for New Delhi from Shanghai via Bangkok, developed a landing-gear problem, Arora said earlier.
