Israeli passenger jet on way to Ukraine after emergency situation in Tel Aviv
The aircraft was to leave Ben Gurion airport and land in Kyiv yesterday evening, but was forced to land due to chassis obstruction
According to the UP air carrier (Israel), the passenger aircraft that had previously requested emergency landing is now on its way to Ukraine. The aircraft departed from Tel Aviv at 4 a.m. Kyiv time – after several hours of making circles in the airspace of Israel; it had to empty fuel reserves before the risky landing to avoid danger of inflammation and keep the passengers away from life hazards as far as possible.
The jet successfully landed at Ben-Gurion at midnight; no one was hurt.
There are 182 passengers aboard.
Earlier yesterday, the administration of Ben-Gurion airport announced the state of emergency due to the jet’s chassis obstruction, which apparently took place during the take-off. The state of emergency was introduced after the jet’s crew reported the malfunction and said they were forced to stay in the air before they run out of fuel.
