IndiGo’s Delhi-Dehradun Flight Safely Returns After Engine Glitch Causes False Fire Alarm

An IndiGo Airbus A320neo, designated as 6E-2134, was operating the scheduled Delhi-Dehradun flight on Wednesday when it experienced an unexpected technical issue in one of its engines. As a false fire warning sounded, the pilots promptly declared a May Day and requested a priority return to Delhi Air Traffic Control (ATC). The flight, which had taken off at 2:09 pm, safely landed back at IGI Airport at 3:19 pm.

The incident caused the Dehradun-bound flight to be redirected to Delhi, where it touched down without any harm to passengers or crew. So far, no injuries have been reported. IndiGo released a statement addressing the situation, stating, “The IndiGo flight (Delhi to Dehradun) returned to its departure point due to a technical issue. The pilot followed the proper procedure by informing ATC and requesting a priority landing. The aircraft landed safely in Delhi and will resume operations after undergoing necessary maintenance.” The aircraft successfully landed back at 3:19 pm without any reported injuries.

Despite the unexpected engine glitch and subsequent diversion, all individuals aboard the flight remained secure, thanks to the prompt actions of the flight crew and the coordinated efforts of Delhi ATC. IndiGo assures that the necessary measures will be taken to address the technical issue before the aircraft resumes its regular operations.
