Mumbai: An Air Traffic Control staff at the
Mumbai airport averted a tragedy this evening by aborting the
takeoff of Jet Airways` Goa-bound flight carrying 158
passengers when another plane was about to touch down.

The ATC asked the Jet pilot to abort the takeoff as an
IndiGo flight was about to land, airport sources said.

"As instructed by the air traffic controllers, Jet flight
from Mumbai to Goa aborted its takeoff uneventfully," a
statement from Jet said.

Later, the Jet flight took off for Goa and landed safely
at the Dabolim airport, the statement added.
