New Delhi: A GoAir plane flying from Bengaluru to Pune on Saturday had to make an emergency landing at the Bengaluru airport, minutes after taking off, due to engine shutdown midair.

Following the “technical glitch”, the plane was forced to make an emergency landing at the Bengaluru airport. While the plane was midair, the pilots were informed of the vibration in engine 1 which led to the oil chip detection alarm. And finally, the shutdown of engine 1 while the plane was still in midair.

The GoAir flight G8-283 then made an emergency landing and all the passengers upon landing safely were accommodated in other flights.
