IndiGo Sharjah flight diverted; second Indian airline in 2 weeks to make emergency landing in Karachi

An IndiGo Sharjah-Hyderabad flight was diverted to Pakistan’s Karachi due to a "technical defect", news agency ANI reported on Sunday. This is the second Indian airline to make an emergency landing in Karachi in two weeks.

"After the pilot of the Sharjah-Hyderabad flight observed a technical defect in the aircraft, as a precaution the aircraft was diverted to Karachi, Pakistan," ANI said in a tweet, quoting the airline.

IndiGo was dispatching an additional flight to Karachi to bring passengers back to Hyderabad, ANI said. InterGlobe Aviation Ltd, which operates IndiGo, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

On July 5, SpiceJet’s Boeing 737 aircraft from New Delhi to Dubai made an emergency landing in Karachi, Pakistan, after a fuel indicator fault. The airline was issued a warning notice by DGCA following the incident.

Recently, the airline watchdog also ordered a probe on IndiGo’s Delhi-Vadodara flight which was diverted to Jaipur as vibrations were observed in the engines of the aircraft.
