Technical Snag Forces Air India Flight To Return To Srinagar

Srinagar:  An Air India flight from Srinagar was forced to return to the airport here today after developing a technical snag mid-air.

Former chief minister Omar Abdullah was also onboard the flight.

The Air India flight from Srinagar to Jammu had to return to Srinagar airport after developing a technical snag, officials at the airport said.

They said the flight took off from the airport but developed a snag mid-air and had to return.

Mr Abdullah tweeted, "Not my day to travel. Now my @airindiain flight has turned back from overhead Pulwama after taking off from Srinagar."

He said he would never fly by the airline on the sector as "too many technical issues keep cropping up".
