Another near miss at Mumbai airport

A Kingfisher flight was cleared for landing at a runway on which SpiceJet plane was stationed.



Mumbai: Barely a week after a near-miss, a mishap was averted Thursday night at the Mumbai airport where a Kingfisher flight was cleared for landing at a runway on which a SpiceJet plane was stationed after a technical fault.

The Mumbai-Chennai SpiceJet flight was to about to take off at around 11 pm but developed a technical problem at the last minute after which the Air Traffic Control asked it to abort the take-off, airport sources said.

But, at the same time, a Delhi-Mumbai Kingfisher Airlines aircraft was given permission for landing at the same runway.

However, just in time, the ATC asked the pilot of the Kingfisher plane to go around after which he decided to take the aircraft back to Delhi, the sources said.

On May 27, a major disaster was averted at the airport here as a Jet Airways plane was asked to abort landing at the last minute after an IndiGo aircraft entered the runway.
