Indian Flight Makes Emergency Stop in Pakistan

A private Indian airline’s commercial flight had to perform an emergency landing at Karachi Airport on Tuesday night.

According to reports from the Civil Aviation Authority as cited in local media, a SpiceJet aircraft heading to Dubai faced a health emergency when a 27-year-old passenger, Dhruv Dharimesh Kumar, fell unconscious due to low blood sugar levels shortly after departing from Ahmedabad to Dubai at 8:38 pm. The pilot, navigating the jet near Karachi over the Arabian Sea, decided to divert to Pakistan’s largest city for an immediate landing.

This marks the second occurrence of an Indian airline necessitating an emergency landing in Pakistan within a few weeks, highlighting the absence of direct flights between the two neighboring countries.
