An Air India plane makes an emergency landing: The plane in question is an A320 neo powered by a CFM Leap engine.
Mumbai: An Air India flight headed for Bengaluru was forced to make an emergency landing at Mumbai International Airport just 27 minutes after takeoff.
According to reports, one of the plane’s engines stopped down mid-flight, causing a close call for passengers. According to the Tata-owned business, the passengers were subsequently flown to the Karnataka capital on a different plane.
The incident has been investigated by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation. The aircraft in question is an A320 Neo powered by a CFM Leap engine.
According to sources, the A320neo airliner received a warning about elevated exhaust gas temperatures shortly after taking off from Mumbai International Airport on Thursday morning. The pilot returned to the airport at 10.10 a.m. after experiencing engine failure.
According to Air India, safety is the company’s primary priority, and its crew is well-equipped to deal with tough situations. It was also said that the company’s engineering and maintenance teams are investigating what went wrong.
The Tata group purchased a majority stake in the indebted Air India earlier this year, after the government sold its holding in the former national carrier.
