Mumbai: 

A Kuwait-city bound Kuwait Airways flight was diverted back to Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport due to a cabin "pressurisation" issue, an airport official said Saturday.

The Airbus A320 aircraft made a "safe" landing under emergency conditions, the official added.

The number of passengers on board the flight could not be immediately known.

"The local standby was declared at for Kuwait Airways flight KU 304 after the pilots sought diversion from the Mumbai ATC due to (cabin) pressurisation problem," the official said.

The aircraft landed safely on the runway, the official said, adding that on landing, the captain said all operations were "normal" and no assistance was required.

Afterwards, the local standby was withdrawn from the runway, he added.
