A technical issue necessitated an emergency landing at Guwahati's Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport on Sunday for an Indigo flight headed for Dibrugarh.

When flight 6E2652 made an emergency landing at the Guwahati airport, Union Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Rameswar Teli and two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs, Prasanta Phukan and Terash Gowalla, were also on board.

"He is still at Guwahati airport after the flight made an emergency landing following a technical glitch," Teli told ANI over the phone.

"I was on the flight along with BJP MLAs Prasanta Phukan and Terash Gowalla. Today I have a schedule of three meetings in Duliajan, Tingkhong and Tinsukia. The flight was in the air for 15 to 20 minutes before landing at Dibrugarh airport and back at Guwahati airport and making an emergency landing. We are all safe. The authorities told us that, that flight will not run again," Teli added.

Meanwhile, the airport authority additionally affirmed about the landing of the Dibrugarh-bound Indigo flight.

Earlier on May 27, A Bengaluru-bound Nepal Airlines aircraft was forced to return to the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu on Saturday after it reportedly suffered a bird hit.

The A320 aircraft of Nepal’s flag carrier landed safely at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) and technicians were examining the aircraft, according to TIA spokesperson Teknath Sitaula.

The flight took off from TIA at 1:45 pm, before being forced to return to the same airport 25 minutes later, news portal Nepal News reported.

Passengers on flight RA-225 bound for Bengaluru reported hearing a loud noise, the Himalayan Times newspaper quoted TIA sources as saying. “The aircraft was diverted to Kathmandu suspecting a bird strike in the course of take-off,” Sitaula said. “TIA engineers are now examining the aircraft,” Sitaula added.
