An Ethiopian Airlines plane made emergency landing at Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport in Delhi on Monday morning due to a technical snag.

The flight was coming from Addis Ababa and was to land at New Delhi at 8.50am. “But, it was found that the Ethiopian Airlines plane developed a landing gear indicator problem because of which it had to make an emergency landing at the airport. It landed at 8.59am,” an airport official said.

The plane, flight number 686, was carrying 226 passengers and all of them were de-boarded safely, the official added.

Earlier this month on July 11, a man tried to force open the emergency door of a flight before it could land at Ranchi airport on Monday night.

He had boarded the AirAsia flight from Delhi. The 32-year-old passenger identified as Aftab Ahmed also injured a few fellow passengers and members of the flight crew when they tried to stop him.

The Air Asia flight (I5-546) had taken off from Delhi and was headed towards Kolkata via Ranchi. At around 9.50pm, Ahmed who was seated on 24-A suddenly tried to force open one of the emergency doors (R2) of the flight.
