IndiGo Flight from Chandigarh to Ahmedabad Causes Panic as Aircraft Climbs Steeply After Landing


IndiGo Flight Causes Panic

Passengers aboard an IndiGo Airlines flight from Chandigarh to Ahmedabad experienced a moment of fear and confusion on Monday night when the aircraft suddenly climbed steeply back into the sky just after its wheels had touched the runway at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport. The incident occurred during what should have been a routine landing at 9:15 pm.


Dr. Neel Thakkar, a Vadodara resident and one of the passengers on Indigo Flight 6E 6056, shared the account of the incident, stating, "The plane started descending at about 8:45 pm, but as soon as its wheels touched the ground, the pilot suddenly pulled up, and the flight was airborne once again. We got panicky as nobody understood what had happened." The aircraft circled in the air for approximately 20 minutes before eventually landing.


According to sources at SVPI Airport, the air traffic controller observed an unstable approach to the ground, prompting an immediate instruction for the pilot to perform a go-around, which involves taking off and landing properly again. It is emphasized that no injuries or health issues were reported among the more than 100 passengers onboard.


Dr. Thakkar promptly sent an email regarding the incident to the airline, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), and Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia. In his communication with the pilot after landing, Thakkar was informed by Pilot Jagdip Singh that the incident resulted from a routine communication issue and that the airline had not received air traffic control (ATC) clearance to land the aircraft.


Expressing his concerns, Thakkar questioned, "If the ATC didn't clear the landing, then how could the aircraft land in the first place?" He further approached the duty manager of IndiGo Airlines, who advised him to send an email to the relevant authorities to initiate a detailed inquiry. Thakkar hopes for a thorough investigation into the matter.


Another passenger, Tejas Joshi, also took to social media, tweeting about the incident on Flight 6E 6056, expressing panic among the passengers. He mentioned IndiGo and AA (Airports Authority) in his tweet.


It is essential for the authorities and the airline to address the concerns raised by the passengers and conduct a comprehensive investigation into the incident to ensure the safety and confidence of future travelers.
