Chennai: Two Spice Jet flights on Wednesday landed
at Chennai airport following technical problems, airport
sources said.

A Madurai-bound Spice Jet, with 62 passengers onboard,
which had left here after a delay of 30-minutes, at around
18:20 hrs, returned after developing a technical problem, they
said.

All the passengers were immediately evacuated and would
be accommodated in another flight to Madurai later.

Earlier, a Coimbatore-Ahmedabad flight with 50 passengers
made an unscheduled landing at Chennai Airport after it
developed a "technical error".

Officials said the flight landed here after pilots
detected the error.

"The passengers would be accommodated in another
flight to Ahmedabad later," they said.
