Plane makes priority landing in Ahmedabad; all passengers safe

"A Mumbai-bound Spice Jet flight number 343 which flew from Jaipur, made a priority landing at the SPVA at around 1 pm, after the pilot reported a drop in cabin pressure," an Airport Authority of India(AAI) official said.

"The pilot reported a drop in cabin pressure to the Air Traffic Control at the SPVA airport this afternoon, after which the flight was allowed to make a priority landing," he said.

"The aircraft made a safe landing here and passengers were accommodated in another aircraft and have left for Mumbai," he added.

A steep drop in cabin pressure could be disastrous for passengers' health as it could result in bursting of ear drums, an AAI official said.
