The Qatar Airways flight QR778 initially took off from Miami and it was heading towards Doha. But, after a technical glitch got detected onboard, the pilot decided to make an emergency landing in Zurich. Right after making a safe landing, the pilot requested to emergency services at the airport in Zurich to check the flight for mechanical issues. The emergency crew did not find any smoke on board during the inspection.



The Qatar Airways authorities later issued a formal statement, which said that the early indications point to a cooling fan malfunction but the aircraft landed safely.



All the passengers and the crew members onboard the Boeing 777-300 were reported to be safe after the evacuation.



A replacement Boeing 777-300 jet was sent to Zurich from Doha to pick up the stranded passengers later. The passengers of the Qatar Airways jet finally reached Doha, after enduring a delay of almost 10 hours.
