Passenger on Mumbai-Bound Indigo flight Tries to open Emergency Exit Mid-Air
A passenger on a Nagpur-Mumbai flight was booked for allegedly attempting to open the emergency exit door while the flight was still in the air
A passenger on a Nagpur-Mumbai flight was booked for allegedly attempting to open the emergency exit door while the flight was still in the air before landing.
Based on sources report, the flight crew members took prompt action and alerted the captain, after which the passenger was appropriately cautioned.
Taking against the passenger, a case has been registered a case against the person for tampering with the emergency exit of the aircraft.
It is to be noted that all the passengers of the flight were safe after the incident.
The incident reportedly occurred on the IndiGo flight 6E-5274 right before it landed at Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport.
This is not the first time the incident of such an unruly passenger has come to light.
A few days ago, a passenger on another IndiGo flight between Chennai and Tiruchirappalli on December 10 of last year opened the emergency door, according to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). However, as the aeroplane hadn't taken off yet, there weren't any negative events.
Since last year, airlines have come under increased scrutiny, initially as a result of many mid-flight mechanical breakdowns, and more recently as a result of how the staff handled rowdy passengers.
