Jet Airways flight makes emergency landing as 30 passengers suffer bleeding

This comes after a Jaipur-bound flight was turned back to Mumbai on Wednesday after several passengers suffered ear pain and nose-bleeds, during take-off due to a loss in cabin air pressure.

The passengers on the flight reportedly wore oxygen masks in response to the mishap which has brought up a discussion concerning air safety in India.

About 30 of the 166 flyers aboard the Boeing 737 aircraft from Mumbai to Jaipur suffered bleeding in their noses, and some in their ears, and forced the plane to return, according to a statement from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation in New Delhi.

The affected passengers were being attended by the doctors at the airport.

The Times reported that India's Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau has launched a probe into the incident, and the airline said it is "extending full cooperation". "All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal".

The civil aviation ministry has taken note of the situation and has requested the aviation regulator DGCA to file its report immediately on the issue.

In January, two Jet Airways pilots were grounded for getting into a brawl and storming out of the cockpit briefly during a New Year's Day flight from London to Mumbai.

Adding further, he said, "The flight landed at Mumbai airport after an hour and we were told that we will be shifted to a different flight".

Jet Airways said the flight's cockpit crew "has been taken off scheduled duties pending investigation", and it was making alternative arrangements for passengers on board. "Some of us experienced nose bleeding and headache". "The airline will continue to offer necessary medical care and attention to the concerned guests as required", the statement reads. "This is an unfortunate incident".
