SpiceJet plane also had to land at Karachi airport
Earlier on July 5, a SpiceJet company plane going from India to Dubai city of UAE had to make an emergency landing at Karachi airport. SpiceJet’s SG-11 flight took off from Delhi to Dubai. Meanwhile, on the way, it was decided to make an emergency landing after discovering a technical flaw in the plane. There were more than 150 passengers on this plane. Later the company sent another plane to Karachi and the passengers were taken from there to Dubai. Engineers were sent from India and they fixed the plane, after which it could be returned.
SpiceJet had said that while the Boeing 737 MAX flight from Delhi to Dubai was in the air, the plane’s left tank started showing abnormal reduction in the amount of fuel. Thereafter the aircraft was diverted towards Karachi. Passengers sat in Pakistan for several hours and during this time they were given breakfast from Pakistan side. According to international rules, Pakistan cannot refuse an emergency landing of an aircraft.
