New Delhi: An IndiGo aircraft flying from Sharjah to Hyderabad had to be diverted to Pakistan today after the pilot reported a technical defect in the aircraft, the airline has said. The plane landed in Karachi and all the passengers are safe. “IndiGo flight 6E-1406, operating from Sharjah to Hyderabad was diverted to Karachi. The pilot observed a technical defect. Necessary procedures were followed and as a precaution the aircraft was diverted to Karachi. An additional flight is being sent to Karachi to fly the passengers to Hyderabad,” the airline said in a release.
This is the second Indian airline to make a landing in Karachi in two weeks.
Earlier this month, a SpiceJet aircraft from Delhi to Dubai made an unscheduled stop in the Pakistan city due to a malfunctioning indicator light.
The 138 passengers later left for Dubai in a replacement flight that was sent from India.
