Dhaka: Two Boeing flights of SpiceJet, one from Mumbai and another from Bengaluru, were terminated due to mid-air technical glitches on May 11. One flight landed back in Mumbai and second was diverted to Nagpur.

SpiceJet flight SG-611 departed from Mumbai's Chhatrapapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport for Chennai around 7.30 am and returned to the city airport due to a mid-air technical glitch after being airborne for about 16 minutes, a SpiceJet spokesperson confirmed.

In a similar incident, the airline's New Delhi-bound flight SG 8720 from Bengaluru was diverted to Nagpur after the pilot reported some issue to the ATC and sought a diversion.

"Passengers were served refreshments at Nagpur. An alternative aircraft was sent to Nagpur and the passengers then boarded the flight to Delhi," the airline said in a statement.
