Jet2 flight makes emergency landing at Manchester over technical glitch

Published on : Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Jet2A 29-year-old Jet2 flight, which initially took off from Manchester Airport, had to make an emergency landing after the old jet faced mechanical problem for the third time in just four weeks of time.



Right after the Jet2 flight took off; the flight crew detected a mechanical glitch at a height of 8,000 ft near Wigan. After the detection, the pilot of the Jet2 flight requested the airport for an emergency landing and the flight entered a holding pattern for almost 40 minutes to burn off the fuel before attempting landing.



The Lanzarote bound Boeing 757 later managed to make a safe landing at the Manchester Airport. The airport authorities had to scramble fire trucks and crews to avoid any catastrophe.



None of the passengers or the crew members of the Jet2 flight were reported to be hurt during the emergency landing.



This was the third time in a month, when the 29-year-old Boeing forced the pilot to divert the flight, shortly after the take off. It was quite surprising that the airline still decided to fly the faulty old jet despite of facing incident after incident.
