MH173 MAKES EMERGENCY LANDING AT IGI!
It has been widely reported that a Malaysian Airlines plane with 158 passengers and crew on board had to land under emergency conditions at the IGI airport on Sunday after one of its engines developed a technical problem.
The airline’s Delhi-Kuala Lumpur flight MH 173 took off from IGI at 13.08 hours. After an hour of flying, the pilot noticed some technical problem in one of the engines and decided to return, airport sources said.
He asked for emergency landing and the Boeing 737-800 aircraft landed safely at 15.02 hours, they said.
Full emergency was declared and five fire tenders and ambulances were rushed to the runway where the aircraft was to land. The aircraft was then taken to an isolated bay.
I trust all passengers on board will be given the utmost assistance in the consumer interests which includes addressing their travel delays, anxiety, shock and other unpleasantaries!
I expect a full and complete investigation into this matter with no stones left unturned nor cover up!
Thank GOD – there was no tragedy!
