Tiruchirappalli: A mid-air technical glitch in Bengaluru-bound Air India Express aircraft with 137 passengers onboard forced the flight to make an emergency landing at Tamil Nadu's Tiruchirappalli on Saturday. The incident took place Saturday afternoon, when the flight took off from Thiruvananthapuram for Bengaluru was diverted to Tiruchirappalli immediately after a technical glitch was detected mid-air. The flight safely landed at the airport, following which all the passengers safely disembarked the flight, reported news agency PTI.
