Chennai: An aircraft which arrived here this morning from Mumbai, developed a snag before landing, and its pilot sought the airport to be on ‘local standby.’

The flight carrying 111 passengers developed a snag while landing and sought the airport here to be on ‘local standby’, an airport official told PTI.

Local standby refers to sounding an alert to the fire and rescue services, if any untoward incidents develop upon the arrival of the aircraft.

“We got a request from the pilot asking us to be on local standby as the flight was approaching the airport. We alerted the (fire and rescue) services to be ready. Soon after it landed, the passengers alighted and the plane was towed away to a bay,” he said.

Later, the snag was rectified and the plane resumed its journey to Delhi, he said.

However, the airlines’ officials were not available for a comment.
