Air India planeAn Air India flight en route to Singapore made an emergency landing in Kolkata this morning after smoke emerged from the cockpit. The flight had taken off from Delhi at 11 pm, but two-and-a-half hours later, it landed at Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata.

Air India sources confirmed to the media that smoke in the cabin prompted the pilots to make an urgent landing which was carried out safely. The national carrier tweeted about the diversion and said that AI 380 was AOG or Aircraft on Ground due to technical failure. An investigation has been ordered.

After a delay of about 18 hours, the passengers arrived at the airport this evening to board the flight, which took off after 8pm.

The husband of a passenger tweeted that Air India asked them to board the same aircraft and blamed the airline for “pathetic support”.

All the passengers were shifted to a hotel in the city.
