Dubai-bound SpiceJet flight returns Mumbai minutes after take-off due to technical glitch

Mumbai (Maharashtra) , Jan 10 : A SpiceJet aircraft on Thursday returned to Mumbai airport soon after taking-off for Dubai following technical glitch.

The snag was rectified by airline engineers and the plane resumed the journey to Dubai after a delay of four hours. All passengers are said to be safe.

On a related note, on January 6, a Dubai bound Air India express flight from Mumbai, carrying as many as 180 passengers on board, landed back under the emergency condition due to a "hydraulic" failure.
