A Delhi-bound IndiGo flight was on Friday forced to make an emergency landing at Patna airport after one of its engines became inoperative. The aircraft made the landing shortly after taking off from the Jay Prakash Narayan International Airport in Patna.
The incident occurred just three minutes after the flight took off.
The IndiGo flight 6E 2433 was carrying 181 passengers and eight crew. All passengers are safe.
This comes just a few days after an Air India Express plane made a precautionary landing at Thiruvananthapuram airport after experiencing a technical glitch mid-flight. The plane was carrying 154 people on board.
