Burning smell in cabin: AI Express Calicut-Dubai flight safely diverts to Muscat

New Delhi: Air India Express Calicut-Dubai flight on Saturday diverted safely to Muscat after burning smell came from a vent in the forward galley. The Boeing 737 (VT-AXX) was operating as IX-355. The crew carried out the SOP for smoke, fire and fumes and then diverted to Muscat where it safely landed.

“No fume or smoke was observed from either engine or APU. There was no smell of fuel or oil. Oven in forward galley was released under MEL (minimum equipment list), meaning a certain part will be repaired within a given time frame and during which the aircraft is safe to fly,” said sources.

Post landing, engineering inspections were carried on the aircraft and the engines.

Comments have been sought from AI Express and are awaited.
