A GoAir aircraft, operating a flight from Bengaluru to Pune with 169 passengers and crew on board, returned to Bengaluru airport and made an emergency landing following an engine snag. The airline arranged an alternative aircraft, in which the passengers left for Pune.

Sources said the aircraft, operating flight G8 283, returned to the airport a few minutes after taking off following an engine vibration warning and oil chip detection alarm in one of the engines. The faulty engine was shut down following procedures before the pilots decided to return to Bengaluru airport.

Flight G8 283 had departed at 5.45 am and was scheduled to arrive in Pune at 7.05 am.

“Flight G8-283 BLR-PNQ suffered a technical glitch. As a standard operating procedure, the captain returned to Bengaluru.
