A Summit Air passenger aircraft, while on its way to Mustang, made an emergency landing at Pokhara Airport in Nepal. The incident took place in the wee hours of Sunday. The aircraft had to make an emergency landing after it had taken off seven minutes back.

“The aircraft landed safely. An investigation is underway. All passengers are in good health,” an airport official told ANI.

The aircraft landed safely with all the occupants. Reportedly, a probe has been initiated into this incident.

Recently, an IndiGo Delhi-Udaipur flight was grounded due to “engine vibration.” This was the second such incident last week when an aircraft returned to Delhi Airport due to technical issues.

The official said the IndiGo flight from Delhi to Udaipur, operated by an A320 Neo aircraft, did an air turnback after there were vibrations in engine 2.
