KOCHI: A Kozhikode-bound Spicejet flight from Jeddah made an emergency landing at the Nedumbassery international airport in Kochi. The SG 036 flight, carrying 197 passengers, was diverted to Kochi due to hydraulic system failure. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) informed that all the passengers are safe.

"The SpiceJet B737 aircraft was operating flight SG-36 (Jeddah - Calicut). But, after take-off from Jeddah, the Air Traffic Control (ATC) informed the pilots about some tyre pieces being found on the runway," the SpiceJet spokesperson said.

Further during the flight, a caution light was illuminated. After that the pilots decided to divert to Cochin where low passes were carried out, to verify whether the landing gear lever was down and locked. After confirmation from ATC of landing gear extension, the aircraft landed safely at Cochin and passengers were deboarded normally, he said.
