Oman Air flight makes a U-turn following technical glitch

MUSCAT, July 17, 2017

An Omar Air flight bound for Bangalore experienced a technical glitch on takeoff and returned safely to its home base, Muscat.

Flight WY 283, operated by a Boeing 737 – 800, took off from Muscat at 10.25 hrs local time with 154 passengers, three infants and six crew members on board. All passengers onboard disembarked smoothly and were accomodated on an alternate flight with the same flight number that took off at 15.00 hrs local time from Muscat.
"Oman Air’s over-riding priority is to safeguard the well-being of all its customers and staff, and the airline is proud of its unblemished safety record. Oman Air provides extensive training for its crew on how to effectively manage problems when they arise, and ensure passenger safety. It also works closely with all the airport authorities throughout its network. This incident illustrates the effectiveness of that training and co-operation," the airline said in a statement.

Oman Air thanked the staff at the Muscat International Airport, Royal Oman Police, Oman Airport Management Company and the Public Authority for Civil Aviation for their cooperation and assistance. - TradeArabia News Service
