SpiceJet’s Delhi-Dubai flight diverted to Karachi due to fuel indicator malfunction
New Delhi: SpiceJet’s Delhi-Dubai flight was diverted to Karachi on Tuesday as the fuel indicator started malfunctioning, officials of the aviation regulator DGCA said.
This is the sixth such incident on SpiceJet aircraft in the last 17 days.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is investigating all the six incidents.
The Boeing 737 Max aircraft that was heading from Delhi to Dubai started showing unusual fuel quantity reduction from its left tank when it was mid-air, the officials said.
Therefore, the plane was diverted to Karachi, they said.
When an inspection was done at the Karachi airport, no visual leak was observed from the left tank, officials noted.
