Oxygen masks deployed in Air India Dubai-Kochi flight over "Loss Of Pressure"
According to authorities, a 258-passenger Air India Dreamliner flight from Dubai to Kochi was diverted to Mumbai after the captain reported "loss of pressure." AI-934, a Boeing 787 flight, reportedly made a successful landing.
According to sources, oxygen masks were used once cabin pressure drop was discovered.
Two senior personnel have been given the duty of looking into the occurrence by the aviation authority, DGCA.
Pilots are trained to react swiftly in the event of a substantial reduction in cabin pressure.
According to sources, the DGCA has grounded the incident-related Dreamliner and removed the crew from duty while an inquiry is ongoing.
A technical issue caused the flight to be redirected to Mumbai, according to a statement released by Air India on Thursday. "With 247 passengers and personnel on board, the Boeing 787 made a safe landing in Mumbai at 1912 (7:12 pm). In order to transport passengers from Mumbai to Kochi, a different aircraft is being organised. The DGCA is looking into the incident "stated Air India.
