  • Air India's Trichy Dubai flight has narrow escape after hitting wall

Also in September, an Air India aircraft landed on the wrong runway, which was under-construction, posing a threat to the lives of 136 passengers and four crew members on board.

The Boeing 737 then hit the upper portion of the airport perimeter wall, located about 50 feet beyond the localiser. The wheels of the aircraft hit a wall of the Trichy airport.

While the Air India flight was flying over the Arabian sea on its way to Dubai, the pilots were informed by the air traffic control (ATC) that their aircraft may have come in contact with the perimeter wall at the Trichy airport.

Parts of the plane's antenna were also found at the Trichy airport, an officer reportedly said. At Mumbai, inspection of the plane revealed severe damage to the undercarriage.

"The 130 passengers and six crew members on-board the aircraft were alighted safely". The plane landed in Mumbai around 5.35 am. Safety of the passengers is of paramount importance for us.

The pilot in command has 3,600 hours of flying experience on the Boeing 737, including 500 hours as a commander and the first officer has about 3000 hours of experience on the Boeing 737.

Realising the trouble and danger, the ATC alerted the Air Indian Express authorities and the Mumbai Airport.

In a statement, Air India Express said that an internal inquiry had been set up and the pilot and co-pilot of the flight had been derostered pending investigation into the incident.

Furthermore, Air India Express has informed the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) about the matter. "Air India has constituted a sub-committee of the Board, headed by an Independent Director, for looking at all safety-related issues within the organisation, including subsidiaries", he said.

Tamil Nadu Tourism Minister Vellamandi N Natarajan visited Tiruchirappalli airport and inspected the accident spot.
