A Hyderabad-bound IndiGo flight has returned to Cochin Airport after a hydraulic warning.
After take-off, the pilot observed the hydraulic warning and the aircraft was made to return as part of a precautionary measure. The flight took off at 1.15 pm and returned soon after.
There were 179 passengers on board and the Cochin International Airport termed the incident as a "technical snag". Indigo, in a press release, has said another flight will be operating to get the passengers to Hyderabad.
A few days back, a Guwahati-bound IndiGo flight with 76 passengers on board made an emergency landing within a few minutes of take-off from the Kolkata airport after smoke was detected from the plane's cargo hold.
Last week, another IndiGo aircraft with 47 passengers on board had a mid-air engine shutdown, forcing it to make an emergency landing at the Chennai airport. IndiGo had called the incident a "technical glitch."
