Amaravati, Jan. 30 (PTI) An aircraft, which took off from Gannavaram Airport near here with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and others onboard on Monday, had to return and land at the aerodrome after the pilot noticed a technical snag in mid-air. An official release said Jagan was to go to the national capital and participate in a preparatory meeting of the Global Investors Summit to be held in Visakhapatnam in March.

“The pilot noticed a problem of pressurisation due to leakage in the AC valve. The pilot identified the problem and diverted the plane back to the Gannavaram airport,” it said.

The flight took off at 5.03 PM today and landed back on 5.27 PM, it said.

The officials are making alternative arrangements for the Chief Minister to go to Delhi on Tuesday, the release added. PTI GDK NVG NVG
