Ahmedabad: As many as 143 passengers on
board a Jaipur-Mumbai Spice Jet flight had a close shave on Tuesday
after their aircraft made a priority landing at the Sardar
Vallabhai Patel Airport here, after reporting a drop in cabin
pressure.

"A Mumbai-bound Spice Jet flight number 343 which flew
from Jaipur, made a priority landing at the SPVA at around
1 pm, after the pilot reported a drop in cabin pressure," an
Airport Authority of India(AAI) official said.

"The pilot reported a drop in cabin pressure to
the Air Traffic Control at the SPVA airport this afternoon,
after which the flight was allowed to make a priority
landing," he said.

"The aircraft made a safe landing here and passengers
were accommodated in another aircraft and have left for
Mumbai," he added.

A steep drop in cabin pressure could be disastrous for
passengers` health as it could result in bursting of ear
drums, an AAI official said.
