Etihad plane experiences technical issue forcing aircraft to return to airport

Posted 11 May 2017 · Add Comment

A technical problem in the engine of an Etihad Airways A319 forced the jet to return to Jaipur International Airport shortly after taking off earlier today.

Indian media, however, reported the flight returned supposedly due to a bird strike.

“An Etihad Airways Airbus A319 aircraft, operating as flight EY207 from Jaipur to Abu Dhabi, returned to Jaipur International Airport shortly after take-off due to a technical issue with an engine yesterday (May 10),” an Etihad Airways spokesman told Arabian Business.

“Passengers disembarked the aircraft and were taken back to the terminal. Our operational staff assisted passengers to ensure they reach their final destinations promptly.”
