Mumbai, Feb 8: A Jet Airways flight bound for Goa was forced to abort take-off Wednesday following an incoming Indigo Airlines flight on the same runway, officials said.
However, officials of both Jet Airways and the Mumbai International Airport Ltd denied that there was any near-collision or an emergency at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
A Jet official said the Mumbai-Goa flight 9W-2403 was advised by the air traffic control to abort take-off this afternoon “on account of an incoming aircraft of another airline (Indigo) on an uncleared approach into Mumbai”.
Giving a different version, an MIAL official said the Jet flight was moving at slow speed and was consequently told to abort take-off and get in the queue for a second take-off.
The official denied that there was any incoming aircraft necessitating the aborted take-off or any near-collision.
The Jet flight later left for Goa with all 158 passengers aboard.
