Patna-bound GoFirst flight makes emergency landing at Nagpur: All safe
A Patna-bound GoFirst (formerly GoAir) flight from Bengaluru with 139 passengers made an emergency landing at Nagpur airport on Saturday morning following an engine glitch. All passengers were reported safe. A faulty engine warning in the cockpit necessitated the captain to shut down the engine as a precautionary measure, the airline said. It was reported later that the engine No 2 had caught fire.

BENGALURU, Nov 27: A Patna-bound GoFirst flight made an emergency landing at Nagpur airport on Saturday morning following an engine glitch. The flight (formerly GoAir) G8-873 was coming from Bengaluru with 139 passengers on board. It made a safe landing at the Nagpur airport at 11.15 am. All passengers were reported safe.

The pilot informed the Nagpur ATC about the snag and sought permission for the emergency landing. The airport thereupon made all requisite arrangements like clearing the runways, readying fire tenders, doctors and ambulances. (According to a TOI report, engine No 2 had caught fire)

In a statement, a spokesperson for GoFirst said that the plane was diverted to Nagpur due to a faulty engine warning in the cockpit. It “necessitated the captain to shut down the engine as a precautionary measure. Thereafter the captain followed the standard operating procedures and landed safely at Nagpur airport,” the statement said.

An alternative aircraft was arranged and the the passengers were to resume journey for Patna at 4.45 pm.

“At GoFirst, safety of its passengers and crew is of paramount importance and the airline sincerely regrets any inconvenience caused to the passengers,” the statement added.

The airline's website says: "With one of the youngest fleets in the world made up entirely of 57 state-of-the-art Airbus A320 aircraft, Go First flies to 31 domestic and 10 international destinations with over 200 flights daily.
