NEW DELHI: Delhi bound SpiceJet flight with 176 passengers on board from Bengaluru made an emergency landing at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport due to partial failure of hydraulic system early morning on Friday.

Airport sources said all passengers and crew of SpiceJet flight SG 136 are safe. SpiceJet’s Boeing 737 aircraft landed at around 8.45 am.

SpiceJet said its flight crew followed the laid down procedure and had informed the air traffic control at Delhi airport of a technical problem. “At no stage did the crew request for any emergency or priority landing. The aircraft made an uneventful landing at the Delhi airport. All passengers and crew are safe. The ATC was kept in the loop by the crew all throughout,” said SpiceJet. 

Recently a SpiceJet and IndiGo aircraft had come face to face with one another at IGI airport on taxi way, which is being probed by the aviation regulator, DGCA.
