Delhi-Jabalpur Spicejet flight returns to Delhi as smoke fills cabin

NEW DELHI, July 2: A Delhi-Jabalpur Spicejet flight SG-2962 was aborted soon after takeoff and returned to Delhi on Saturday as smoke was noticed in the cabin. The plane landed back at Delhi safely amid all arrangements put in place to meet any emergency.

SpiceJet Q400 aircraft took off from Delhi for Jabalpur at 6:15 am on Saturday and while passing 5,000 feet, the crew and passengers noticed smoke in the cabin. "The smoke started increasing when the flight reached an altitude of 14,000 feet. The pilot then informed the Air Traffic Control and May Day (distress signal) was declared. Following this, the flight turned back towards Delhi," sources said.

The aircraft returned to Delhi airport and made an emergency landing safely at 7:00 am and passengers were safely disembarked, a SpiceJet statement said.

The passengers had complained of difficulty in breathing after takeoff. They began fanning themselves with newspapers.

It is reported that the smoke came from engine No 1 due to an oil leakage.

This is the second incident in two weeks when a fire incident occurred in a SpiceJet aircraft. On June 19, a similar incident happened on Patna to Delhi flight following a bird hit. SpiceJet mishaps have beome a routine matter.
