New Delhi: An Air India Dreamliner, with 184 passengers and crew onboard operating on London-Delhi route, made "priority" landing at the IGI Airport after some warning lights indicating problem with the braking system blipped in the cockpit.
"The flight AI 116 sought priority landing yesterday around 2.30 AM after pilots found some warning lights blipping as they were approaching Delhi," Air India officials said.
The lights indicated problems with the braking system that prompted the pilots to seek priority landing, they said, adding the aircraft, with 174 passengers and 10 crew members on board, landed safely.
Airport sources said emergency procedures were put in place for the aircraft which was operating on the London-Delhi sector.
