New Delhi: A city-bound Air India flight from Jodhpur with 142 passengers on-board was diverted to Jaipur on Saturday evening due to a landing gear of the aircraft failing to retract after takeoff, officials said.

Later, most of the passengers travelled to their destination by road while the remaining were adjusted on Alliance Air flight to Delhi from Jaipur, an Air India spokesperson said.

The problem with the landing gear could not be fixed at Jaipur and the snag-hit aircraft was flown to Delhi without the passengers.
