SpiceJet freighter aircraft returns to Kolkata due to its unserviceable weather radar
The aircraft landed safely at Kolkata, SpiceJet spokesperson told PTI on Wednesday.
This is at least the eighth incident of technical malfunction happening on SpiceJet aircraft in the last 18 days.
On Tuesday itself, the airline's Delhi-Dubai flight was diverted to Karachi due to a malfunctioning fuel indicator and its Kandla-Mumbai flight did priority landing in Maharashtra's capital city after cracks developed on its windshield mid-air.
''On July 5, 2022, SpiceJet Boeing 737 freighter was scheduled to operate from Kolkata to Chongqing. After take-off, the weather radar was not showing the weather. The PIC (pilot-in-command) decided to return to Kolkata. The aircraft landed safely at Kolkata,'' SpiceJet spokesperson told PTI on Wednesday.
