In September, GoAir flight had to make an emergency landing in Bengaluru airport due to a technical issue. Reports said that the flight G8-283 was scheduled to fly from Bengaluru to Pune when its engine developed a snag mid-air. It was a close shave for the passengers who were on board the GoAir flight.
In a statement issued by the flight said that after the glitch, the flight was returned to Bengaluru as per the standard operating procedure.
Reportedly, when the flight was midair, the pilots were informed of the vibration in an engine. The vibration led to the oil chip detection alarm. The engine was finally shut down while the plane was still mid-air.
In June, an Indigo airline had made an emergency landing at Kolkata airport after the pilot noticed a crack in the windshield of the aircraft. Reports say the Indigo flight was traveling to Banglore. All 178 passengers on board are reported to be safe.
