Paris-Mumbai flight makes emergency landing in Iran

 Thursday, May 9, 2019 


An Air France subsidiary’s jetliner had to make an emergency landing in Iran. The plane stayed on the ground for several hours on Wednesday before flying to Dubai, the airline said.


The Airbus A340 flown by the low-cost carrier Joon was heading from Paris to Mumbai when it landed in the central Iran city of Isfahan. A statement from Joon said that the plane, operating as flight AF218, landed out of precaution over a malfunctioning ventilation circuit.


Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency said local authorities provided services to passengers. It said all were in good health.


Air France said the plane was checked by local maintenance teams and then departed for Al Maktoun International Airport in Dubai, where it was expected to arrive early Thursday.


Air France said it would re-route passengers to Mumbai on other airlines as soon as possible.
