The Departure of SpiceJet Flight SG-429 at 08:35 am Disrupted as Aircraft Returns to Bay Amid Technical Issue.
A technical issue caused a disruption in the departure of a SpiceJet flight bound for Gwalior from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport on Sunday. The scheduled departure time for flight SG-429, set for 08:35 am, was affected as the aircraft returned to the airport bay due to a reported technical problem.
SpiceJet’s spokesperson confirmed the technical issue and assured that the flight’s departure time had been adjusted. “SpiceJet flight SG 429 returned to the bay due to a technical issue. The flight’s departure time was revised and will depart shortly for Gwalior,” stated the airline spokesperson.
This incident follows a recent event in July, where a fire broke out inside a grounded SpiceJet aircraft during maintenance work at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport. Fortunately, no injuries to maintenance personnel or major damage to the aircraft were reported in the incident that occurred on July 25.
Passengers and airline officials are urged to prioritize safety protocols as technical issues continue to be a concern within the aviation industry. SpiceJet, a prominent airline in India, is expected to conduct thorough checks and assessments before resuming the Gwalior-bound flight to ensure the safety and well-being of passengers and crew members.
