british-airwaysA flight of British Airways that was on its way to London suddenly declared an emergency over Iranian airspace.

 

Consequently it was rerouted to land at the closest major airport in Baku that is the capital of Azerbaijan. The apparent reason as per one of the passengers on board the flight was smoke inside the first class cabin of the flight.

 

The flight BA198 was rerouted to Baku ‘squawking 7700’.

 

This is actually an aviation code. This aviation code is utilized when the crew of a flight calls an emergency and requests immediate assistance from all air traffic control centres in this region.

 

A trace of this flight on a flight tracking site Flightradar indicated BA198 that is a Boeing 777-300 ER leaving from Mumbai and flying over airspace over Balochistan.

 

It was entering Iranian airspace and issuing the emergency call just while it was about to leave Iranian air.

 

Flightradar mentioned that soon after notifying of the alert that the plane had touched down at Baku with a technical complication. There has, however a slight bit of clarity about the identity of the technical issue via a microblogging site.

 

But then there has been no official word from British Airways about this incident.

 

The advisories have added that some delays are likely to be expected on flights routed through London thanks to a snow storm.
