The flight requested for an emergency landing after the issue was detected. On Wednesday 1st June, the flight landed at St. Petersburg around 12:30 pm.

 

 

The flight 871 had 140 passengers onboard. After the mechanical interference, the flight landed on the nearest airport. The airport authority arranged fire engines by the time of the landing and took all the necessary precautions to prevent any mishap. Later, the flight was towed from the runway.

 

 

The airlines authority gave their formal statement, “Our mechanics are doing a full investigation and inspection to diagnose and repair the issue.”

 

 

This is not the first time when the airlines faced any such mechanical issues and emergency landing. The airline is under review by FAA from April, because of the series of blunders done by the airlines.

 

 

One of the passengers, Tina Gatt informed, “I was assuming, as soon as I heard that they had those issues, that my flight would have been safer. But hearing the plane that landed just before us kind of does concern me.”

 

The passengers and the crew were safely evacuated from the flight.
