On Friday, Saudia, also known as Saudi Arabian Airlines was forced to make an emergency landing in Pakistan. This is due to the fact that its captain started suffering from health-related issues on a flight from India to Jeddah, according to a news agency.
The news agency said that the captain of Airbus A330 suffered a bout of illness that required his assistant to assume control of the plane immediately.
Thereafter, it asked the co-pilot to make way for a landing in Karachi. Here, a doctor was able to assess the condition of his sick colleague.
One of the sources of this airlines company said that the c-pilot was capable of making the airplane land normally. After that, the captain was checked medically. The source also added that the doctor then transferred the captain to the hospital for the treatment that was necessary to revive him.
However, the doctor refused to reveal the medical problem of the captain.
Flight SV891 had originated in Lucknow, India on Thursday. It was on its way to Jeddah.
Immediately about two and a half hours after the plane took off from Lucknow, the captain of the flight started experiencing health complications. Then, around 9 p.m., a special Saudia flight left Jeddah on Thursday. It was done to bring the stranded passengers from Karachi.
On board the flight were the cabin crew, co-pilot and a substitute pilot. They planned to fly the original plane back to Jeddah without passengers, as stated by the source of the airlines company.
