Fog troubles Singapore Airlines pilot in Mumbai

A Singapore Airlines pilot faced visibility issues due to dense fog in Mumbai on Monday.

The aircraft initially flew towards the Juhu Airport and then landed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.

The Mumbai International Airport Ltd and Singapore Airlines confirmed the incident.

"Airlines SQ422, an Airbus A350, operating from Singapore to Mumbai was scheduled to land on Runway 9 at CSIA at 10.35 am. Due to poor visibility conditions, the crew discontinued the approach at approximately 1000 feet, in accordance with standard operating procedures. Air Traffic Control Mumbai then vectored the flight for a subsequent approach onto Runway 9 and the flight landed uneventfully at 10.48 am," a Singapore Airlines spokesperson said.

At no time did the pilots of SQ 422 mistake Juhu Airport for Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, the spokesperson added.
