A flight from Sharjah to Kozhikode which took off from Sharjah at 7 AM and was supposed to land at 12.40 PM in Kozhikode with 112 passengers was diverted to Thiruvananthapuram after it developed the snag in the hydraulic system as there are high risks associated with landing at the table-top runway of Kozhikode airport, especially in an emergency situation.
The flight landed safely at around 1 PM. All the passengers, including the crew, were safe and evacuated. The aeroplane was then moved to the technical area for repairs
