Air India Makes Emergency Landing
According to our limited information, there were around 140 passengers onboard the flight. Upon landing, a few passengers refused to take flight again.
The technical team, ground personnel, and maintenance personnel checked the aircraft. After finding no issues with the aircraft, the flight took off again.
The incident led to a delay of one hour in taking off, and the flight landed safely at Delhi Airport (DEL). Further, Air India daily operates flight between UDR and DEL, and this is one of the rarest incidents for the airline.
Air India Airbus A320 operates the flight, registered as VT-EDC. Further, it is a 13.5-year-old aircraft; Airbus delivered it to AI back in Feb 2010, as reported by Planespotters.net.
