There were 118 passengers onboard the aircraft.

An Air India flight from Dubai to Mangalore made an emergency landing at Kochi Airport on Tuesday morning.

The flight made emergency landing due to inclement weather.

“Air India flight from Dubai to Mangalore was diverted and landed at the Cochin International Airport due to bad weather conditions in Mangalore,” said ACK Nair, Director of Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL).

There are reports of heavy rainfall in the Indian city of Mangalore, hence, the aircraft was diverted amidst low visibility considering the safety of the passengers.

Passengers were reportedly taken aback and video footages showed the passengers’ relatives were waiting anxiously at the Mangalore airport to receive their loved ones.
