Malaysian carrier makes emergency landing at Chennai airport

Chennai: A city-bound Malaysian carrier flight with 141 passengers made an emergency landing at the airport here following a technical ‘snag’, airport officials said on Sunday.

The flight from Kuala Lumpur, also carrying five crew members, developed some issues related to cabin pressure and was given priority ahead of other flights to make the emergency landing late last night.

A medical team was put on alert to attend to any health issues for passengers but there was no complaints from any, the officials said.

Consequently, the return flight to Kuala Lumpur today has been cancelled and all passengers accommodated at a star hotel here, officials added.
