New Delhi: A SpiceJet Boeing 737 The return flight from Dubai to India could not operate on Monday as an engineer stopped it due to a fault in the nose wheel. Sources said the B737 (VT-SZK) had operated safely from Mangalore to Dubai on Monday (July 11) and was to fly back to Madurai.
“After landing during the walk around inspection, the engineer noticed that the nose wheel strut was narrower than normal and grounded the aircraft. The airline has sent another plane (flow without passengers) from Mumbai to Dubai,” said sources. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation is probing the matter.
a SpiceJet The spokesperson said: “SpiceJet flight SG23 from Dubai to Madurai on July 11, 2022 was delayed due to a technical issue at the last minute. An alternate flight was arranged immediately to bring the passengers back to India. Flight delays can happen with any airline. There have been no incidents or safety concerns on this flight. After a minor technical issue was resolved, the first aircraft returned to India as a commercial flight.
a DGCA The official said the problem could be due to the lack of nitrogen used in the Olio strut or due to internal seal damage. The exact cause will be ascertained on the basis of examination of the landing gear (part). “Nitrogen replenishment was done as per the maintenance procedure. No other abnormalities were observed. The aircraft has been released for service,” the official said.
The regulator had last week issued show cause notices to the airline over several irregularities in the past few weeks.
