Barely two weeks in the tragic plane crash in Nepal, a Malaysia-bound flight of US-Bangla Airlines made an emergency landing at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on Saturday.
When contacted, US-Bangla Airlines GM (Marketing Support and PR) Kamrul Islam said a flight with 164 passengers on board took off from the airport around 9:00 am. It came back and landed at the airport at 9:15 am as its pilot received a ‘false indication’ from the aircraft.
However, after check-up, the flight took off from the airport for Malaysia around 11:45 am, he added.
Earlier on March 12, at least 49 people, including 26 Bangladeshi nationals, were killed as a US-Bangla Airlines aircraft crashed and burst into flames at Tribhuvan International Airport in the capital of Himalayan county Nepal on March 12.
Besides, a Jessore-bound US-Bangla Airlines flight made a safe emergency landing in Dhaka due to signal imbalance after take-off on March 4.
