Emirates was forced to diverted an Airbus A380 to the Indian city of Hyderabad after pilots encountered a technical malfunction, it has been reported.
Pilots had initially requested to land at Chennai airport, but the runway was too busy and clearance was therefore not received.
Fire engines and ambulances were placed on standby at Hyderabad, although the superjumbo was apparently towed to a parking bay without incident.
Emirates accommodated 80 passengers on another Hyderabad – Dubai flight (EK 527), while another special flight was arranged to Dubai for more passengers. More info
