Narrative:
Budget airline plane from India reportedly made an emergency landing at Salalah airport (Sultanate of Oman) due to technical snag. The Air India Express flight from the south Indian state of Kerala, with nearly 150 passengers on board, made ‘emergency landing’ at one end of the runways and was towed to the remote bay. One of the passengers travelling in the aircraft said that the ACs were switched off an hour before the emergency landing and an announcement was made that the plane was going to make a “risky landing”. An Air India official in Oman confirmed that some technical problems had occurred to the flight. No one was injured.
