An Airbus A380 operated by Emirates made an emergency landing in Sri Lanka due to a technical glitch on Friday morning. The Emirates flight was scheduled to fly from Sydney to Dubai and there were more than 500 people onboard.
Emirates flight EK413 from Sydney to Dubai was diverted to Colombo International airport according to the statements of the airline as they are yet to divulge any further details about the nature of the technical problem.
The fire fighting crew and emergency units were on place while the Airbus aircraft landed safely. No one was hurt and an investigation is under way, according to reports.
Emirates carried out its first A380 landing in Colombo in 2012 but the airport has yet to be upgraded to handle the biggest passenger airliner. The airline said passengers were being transferred to other Emirates flights.
