The snag was rectified by the airline engineers and the plane has resumed the journey to Dubai after a delay of over 4-hours. All passenger on the flight is said to be safe.
SpiceJet has issued a statement, which reads, “On January 9, 2019, flight SG-13 returned to Mumbai due to a minor technical issue. The aircraft made a normal landing. Reports of emergency landing are wrong and baseless. After checks, aircraft continued with its rotation and has landed at Dubai in the normal course of business.”
On January 6, a Dubai-bound Air India flight from Mumbai, which was carrying over 180 passengers had to return back due to “hydraulic” failure in the system.
