Chennai: A Chennai-bound Air India flight from Mumbai carrying 111 passengers besides crew made a priority landing at the international airport here today following some technical problem, an airport official said.
The official said an alert was sounded before the aircraft landed under ‘local standby’ protocol.
The term local standby refers to sounding an alert to fire and rescue services to tackle any untoward incidents upon the arrival of an aircraft which is landing in emergency conditions.
Later, the snag was rectified and the plane resumed its journey to Delhi.
