Chicago-Delhi Air India flight diverted to Toronto

An Air India Chicago-Delhi flight, carrying 342 passengers, was diverted to Toronto this morning after the pilot suspected oil leakage in one of its engines, officials said.

After flying for two and a half hours from Chicago, the AI 126 Chicago-Delhi-Hyderabad flight turned to Toronto Pearson Airport, airline officials said here.

It landed at the Toronto airport under emergency conditions after disposing of its fuel onboard.

The twin-engine aircraft landed safely around 0700 hours IST, they said. Ground engineers were inspecting the port engine of the Boeing 777 ER (Extended Range).

A decision on bringing the passengers to Delhi and Hyderabad will be taken after the inspection is over, they said.
