Just 27 minutes after takeoff, an Air India jet heading for Bengaluru had to make an emergency landing at Mumbai airport.

According to reports, one of the plane’s engines shut down mid-flight, saving passengers’ lives. The passengers were then flown to the Karnataka capital on a different plane, according to the Tata-owned business. The incident has been investigated by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation. The jet in question is a CFM Leap-powered A320 Neo.

The A320neo airliner received a warning about excessive exhaust gas temperatures minutes after taking off from Mumbai airport on Thursday morning, according to reports. The pilot landed at 10.10 a.m. after experiencing engine failure.

Air India stated that safety is the company’s first priority and that its staff is well-equipped to deal with a variety of situations. The company’s engineering and maintenance teams are investigating what went wrong, according to the statement.

With the government divesting its holding in the former national carrier, the Tata group bought a majority stake in the debt-ridden airline earlier this year.
