ISTANBUL: A Qatar Airways aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport on Thursday after one of its engines caught fire shortly after take-off, broadcaster CNN Turk reported.
The Airbus 330 had been headed for Doha. There were no
immediate reports of any casualties.
Earlier this month, a Pakistan International (PIA) aircraft veered off the runway at Islamabad airport as it attempted to land back following a technical fault.
“Due to technical issues, a PIA aircraft landed back at Islamabad airport and veered off the runway. Aircraft & all passengers are safe,” PIA spokesperson Danyal Gilani tweeted.
