New Delhi: A Bangalore-bound Go Air plane, with 171 passengers and crew on board, had to make an emergency landing at the IGI airport soon after it took off
from here today, an official spokesperson said.
The pilot of the Go Air flight G8-201 asked for emergency landing after a smoke warning from the cargo compartment was on. The flight which took off at 9.23 am from Delhi landed safely at 9.41 am, he said.
"All the 165 passengers and six crew members onboard are safe," the spokesperson said, adding that there is no casualty reported.
This airbus-320 aircraft was the newest one which Go Air has taken from airbus industry.
