Flights delayed for 30 minutes at Mumbai airport after cargo aircraft suffers hydraulic failure

The main runway of Mumbai International airport was shut down for over 30 minutes on Thursday at noon following a hydraulic failure reported by UPS Airlines, a cargo aircraft.

The  aircraft landed at Mumbai airport with a deflated tyre. For half an hour, operations were shifted to the secondary runway while aircraft was towed away.

Last month several flights were delayed due to repairwork on the runway.

During this period, the secondary runway was used for take-off and landings. However, the capacity of the secondary runway is far less when compared to the primary runway due to which several flights will be delayed.
