Air India Newark (US)-Delhi flight (AI106), with around 300 passengers, experienced a technical problem and had to make an emergency landing in Stockholm, Sweden. Every passenger is secure. As the plane made an emergency landing, there were numerous fire engines stationed at the airport.
A senior Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) official said an oil leak was discovered in one of the engines of the flight. Once the engine was turned down due to the oil spill, the aeroplane safely landed in Stockholm.
During the ground inspection, oil was seen dripping from engine two’s drain mast, according to the official, who added that the inspection was still ongoing. According to an airline representative, the flight from Newark, New Jersey, was diverted to Stockholm due to a technical issue.
This comes after an onboard medical issue caused an Air India flight (AI-102) from New York to Delhi to be diverted to London on February 20. “Air India AI-102 John F. Kennedy International Airport to Delhi flight diverted to London due to a medical emergency,” said an official.
After the flight was delayed by more than four hours, passengers and airline workers of an Air India flight headed for Mumbai got into a violent altercation at the Delhi airport on February 21 late at night.
According to a passenger on the Flight AI-805 Delhi-Mumbai route, was delayed from its scheduled departure time of 8 PM to 10:40 PM, then 11:35 PM, then 12:30 AM (February 22), and finally took off at 1:48 am from Delhi’s Terminal 3 airport.
