The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has launched an inquiry. The official said that the flight, operated on a five-year old Airbus A320, landed safely at Ahmedabad around 9.25pm Monday.
“None of the passengers or crew members were injured and the aircraft landed safely, the official added.
