Indigo pilot suspects technical snag, makes emergency landing

Thiruvananthapuram: An Indigo flight flying from Mumbai to Thiruvananthapuram with 161 passengers had an emergency landing at the Thiruvananthapuram airport on Wednesday evening.
Airport sources said the pilot of Flight 933 had a doubt of technical snag while preparing for the landing. Hence the pilot alerted the airport traffic control and sought permission for an emergency landing. The airport authorities made it clear that there was no cause of concern and all passengers are safe.
However, official sources of Indigo airlines ruled out the reports that there was an emergency landing by its flight here.
"The pilot had a doubt when the flight had touched 10,000 feet for landing, hence he had demanded a push back at the air traffic control. But when the flight touched 5,000 feet, the pilot said that there was no need for it as it was just a doubt on some technical snag in the landing," said an official of the airlines.
