This was the second snag the airline faced on Tuesday as one of its Boeing 737 MAX is currently grounded in Karachi since morning after a technical glitch.
“The Q400 (VT-SUV) was operating as SG 3324 when during cruise at 23,000 feet the co-pilot side windshield outerpane cracked. Associated checklist actions were carried out. Pressurisation was observed to be normal. Priority landing was carried out and aircraft landed safely at Mumbai,” said a senior official.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has ordered a probe into this.
Earlier today, a SpiceJet Boeing 737 MAX en route from Delhi to Dubai had to be diverted to Karachi after a fuel system snag.
The airlines has sent a replacement aircraft from Mumbai to fly the stranded passengers in Karachi to Dubai.
These are the latest in a series of snags the budget carrier’s flights have been witnessing in recent weeks.
