FlybeAn aircraft of Flybe that had been carrying 60 passengers on board had to go for an emergency landing in account of a technical issue. The flight had been confronting with issues with its front wheels as it travelled to Edinburgh from Birmingham on Tuesday around 7 p.m.


The airlines company said that that the emergency services had rushed to Edinburgh Airport as a safety measure with an aim to meet flight BE851.


A spokeswoman of the airlines company said that Flybe can confirm the above flight that had landed without incidents at Edinburgh Airport after a technical error was reported with the aircraft.


The pilot of the aircraft had followed all the necessary processes and the aircraft was capable of landing safely.


Thereafter, it was towed to stand. And, all the 60 passengers on board the flight were able to disembark from the plane normally. The spokesperson of Flybe also said that the safety of its passengers is the number one priority of Flybe and it would like to offer an apology to passengers for any inconvenience that might have been caused.


This incident is the third of its kind that had been associated with the airlines company in the recent weeks.


Last Thursday, a Flybe flight between Edinburgh and Amsterdam had crash landed at Schipol Airport after its landing gear had collapsed. On the same day, a flight between Glasgow to Birmingham was compelled to return to Glasgow following the shut-down of its propeller engines by the pilot.
