Singapore : The Singapore Airlines (SIA) has dismissed media reports, which claimed that the pilots of its Singapore-Mumbai flight tried to land at a wrong airport.
Singapore Airlines denies its flight tried to land in wrong airport
The airline's statement comes after a section of media reported that flight SQ422 on Monday mistakenly made an approach to land at Mumbai's Juhu airport instead of Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
Mumbai's air traffic control then vectored the flight for a subsequent approach and the flight landed 'uneventfully' at Chhatrapati Shivaji terminus.
Juhu airport has a shorter airstrip and is used for handling helicopters and small aircraft. Landing on a wrong runway could have resulted in an overrun.
