'Snag' in AI Express flight, makes unscheduled landing

A Dubai-bound Air India Express from Tiruchirappalli with 169 passengers on board made an unscheduled landing at the Chennai airport today following a 'snag,' officials said.

The flight was on its way to Dubai when the snag was detected and since Chennai was the nearest base it landed here early this morning, an airline spokesperson told PTI.

The passengers were given accommodation in different city hotels and the flight is expected to resume its journey later in the day after the snag is rectified, he said.
