Air India flight makes emergency landing at Mumbai airport after hydraulic failure


MUMBAI: An Air India A321 plane flying from Ahmedabad made an emergency landing at the Mumbai airport on Wednesday.

Air India’s AI-985 flight took off from Ahmedabad with 131 passengers on board at 7:30 pm, but the plane developed a hydraulic fault on the road that forced pilots to opt for an emergency landing, a source said. A spokesman for the Mumbai airport said the total emergency was declared at 8.15 p.m. for AI 985 arriving from Ahmedabad due to hydraulic failure.

With the fire trucks and ambulances on hold, the plane landed safely at 8.35 p.m., after which the emergency was withdrawn. The Air India spokesperson was not available for comment.
