Smoke Alert Forces Jet Plane to Land at B’lore Airport

Published on : Friday, December 28, 2018

A Jet Airways plane was grounded with 71 passengers onboard at the Bengaluru airport just before takeoff on Thursday morning after reports of smoke from the aircraft. The passengers were evacuated to a different aircraft and the plane was sent for repairs.

 

The airline issued a statement confirming the “technical snag”, adding that the incident took place while the aircraft was parked at the bay.

 

“Our flight 9W 713 from Bangalore to Mangalore was delayed due to technical snag, while parked at bay, prior to departure. An alternate aircraft was immediately arranged and the flight departed with 71 guests. We regret the inconvenience caused to our guests.”

 

The latest scare comes only days after an IndiGo aircraft made an emergency landing after smoke was detected in the cabin. The airline said all the passengers and crew were safe and the plane had no earlier report of any malfunction.

 

However, a video showed thick smoke inside the cabin as passengers were leaving the plane on an inflatable slide.
