New Delhi: An engine failure forced a Russia-bound aircraft from Vietnam with 344 passengers on-board to make an emergency landing at the T-3 terminal of the IGI airport here, a DIAL spokesperson said.

All standard operating procedures were put into action during the emergency landing at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport at 6:10 pm. All passengers are safe, he said.

The IGI airport police station received information about the emergency landing of the non-scheduled flight, numbered ABG 8772, from the CISF control room at 5.22 pm. The aircraft with 344 passengers on board landed safely at 6.05 pm, DCP Sanjay Bhatia said.

An ATC source said the pilot sought permission for an emergency landing after the right engine of the Boeing 767 aircraft stopped working midair.

The aircraft was going from Phu-Quoe in Vietnam to Yekaterinburg in Russia.
