Fuel gauges began to fail in SpiceJet
SpiceJet’s Delhi-Dubai flight was directed to Karachi on Tuesday when fuel gauges began to fail, DGCA officials from civil aviation regulators said. Since the beginning of the year, SpiceJet aircraft have been involved in six similar incidents. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is investigating all six cases. Boeing 737 Max, flying from Delhi to Dubai, began to show an unusual decrease in the amount of fuel from the left tank while in the air, officials said. Therefore, the plane was directed to Karachi. Inspections at Karachi Airport did not find any visible leaks from the fuel tank on the left, officials said.

The plane landed safely in Karachi and the passengers disembarked safely. “No emergency was declared and the plane landed successfully. There were no previous reports of aircraft failures. Light meals were provided to passengers. An alternative aircraft will be sent to Karachi to take passengers to Dubai. “
According to the airline, a spice jet flying from Kandla, Gujarat, landed preferentially in Mumbai after the outer windshield broke in the air.

Other incidents that caught the attention of the regulatory authorities were two-door warnings, bird strikes, engine leaks, and pressurization issues, in addition to today’s breakdowns.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the aviation regulator, conducted a safety audit of the entire fleet of SpiceJet aircraft last month and continues to inspect it on a case-by-case basis. Earlier today, a spice jet flying from Delhi to Dubai had to be directed to Karachi due to a malfunctioning indicator light.
Just two days ago, a pilot of a SpiceJet Q400 aircraft flying from Delhi to Jabalpur issued an emergency call for “May Day” and returned to Delhi after smoke was found on board. On June 19, a spice jet to Delhi landed with 185 passengers shortly after takeoff in Patna, where the left engine ignited after a bird strike.
The SpiceJet SG-11, which was flying from Delhi to Dubai, made an emergency landing in Karachi (Pakistan) after a technical error. However, all passengers are safe, according to ANI press. The airline arranged another plane from Mumbai to pick up the passengers at Karachi Airport and take them to Dubai at 1:30 pm.

Light meals were provided to passengers, “said a SpiceJet representative.
This is the sixth such incident for airlines in the last three months. Just a few days ago, on July 2, a SpiceJet flight to Jabalpur landed at Delhi Airport after smoke was found on board the flight at an altitude of 5,000 feet. Nevertheless, all passengers were safe. The occurrence of a “security incident” on SpiceJet is a source of concern.
Two incidents were reported on June 19th alone. A flight to Delhi where more than 185 passengers ignited shortly after taking off from Patna Airport and had to make an emergency landing. The airline has revealed that the bird strike has damaged the fan blades.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) reported that the May SpiceJet was ranked second in flight cancellations. Gurgaon-based airline FlyBig takes the infamous top spot. Investigations into the SpiceJet fire to Delhi began following Patna’s takeoff and two other aviation accidents related to Indigo and SpiceJet flights, according to a source from the Director-General of Civil Aviation of India (DGCA). I did.
On Sunday, a SpiceJet plane carrying 185 passengers to Delhi fired shortly after taking off from Patna Airport and made an emergency landing minutes later. “The plane landed safely in Patna and the passengers disembarked safely. Post-flight inspections showed that a bird with three fan blades was beaten.”
In another incident on Sunday, SpiceJet flights to Jabalpur were forced to return to Delhi due to pressure issues, DGCA officials said. SpiceJet Bombardier Q400 aircraft with the registration number. VT-SUU, which was operating SG-2962 (Delhi-Jabalpur), was involved in a reversal due to pressure congestion, he said.
During the first ascent, the crew observed that there was no difference in the cabin as the altitude of the cabin increased, he said. He said the plane levelled at 6,000 feet and underwent unusual checklist actions, but the pressurization did not recover and the return flight began. The plane landed safely in Delhi, officials said.
SpiceJet has issued a statement confirming the safe return of Delhi-Jabalpur flights due to in-flight pressure differences-the ITB, which was operating flight 6E-6394 from Guwahati to Delhi, had an aeroplane Officials said they suffered a bird strike that resulted in one of the engines being damaged at an altitude of 1,600 feet.
The plane couldn’t climb up to 6,000 feet. Once cleared, 2,000 feet were retained and (Flight Crew) performed an ECAM (Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitor) action. He said Engine 01 was shut down via ECAM. However, he added, the plane landed safely on Runway 20 at Guwahati Airport.
ECAM is an Airbus aircraft system that monitors engine and aircraft system information and displays it to pilots. An error will be displayed in the event of a malfunction, and the appropriate steps for corrective action will also be displayed. Officials also said that crew members on IndiGo flights first declared a “Mayday” call, but later cancelled it and changed it to a Pampang call.
The Indigo Airbus A320neo (VT-ITB) on flight 6E6394 from Guwahati Delhi returned to Guwahati Airport after a suspected bird attack after takeoff. IndiGo said that all passengers were detained on another flight to Delhi. DGCA official said investigations had begun on all three cases.
