Vistara responds to AAP leader Sanjay Singh's claims that flight landing 'shook soul'

Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia assured AAP MP Sanjay Singh of an inquiry and action after the latter alleged that a Vistara flight had narrowly avoided an accident while landing at the Bhubaneswar airport on Wednesday.

Flight UK785 took off from Delhi at 7am and reached Odisha’s Bhubaneswar around 9am on Wednesday.

Today, Vistara flight’s landing in Bhubaneswar rattled the souls of the passengers and it just escaped an accident,” the Rajya Sabha MP wrote.

“Please divert your attention away from the pilot; else, a severe incident may occur. Please take note, Vistara management and Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia,” Singh continued.

Scindia responded on Twitter, saying, “Sanjay ji, we will investigate this matter and take proper action. Thank you for alerting us to the incident.”

In response to the allegations, a Vistara spokesperson said, “We would like to confirm that Vistara flight UK785 operating from Delhi-Bhubaneswar on October 27, 2021, encountered strong tailwinds during its approach to land. However, the pilots managed to make the necessary adjustments and, despite the gusty winds, the touchdown was normal. Our pilots are well trained and experienced in handling such situations. Safety of our customers and staff is of paramount importance.”

Speaking to India Today TV, Directorate General of Civil Aviation sources said the aircraft had made a normal landing with tailwinds.

DGCA sources explained that at 2,000 feet, the initial tower reported winds were within limits for instrument landing on runway 14 (less than 5 knots). From 1,000 feet, DGCA explained, the wind started becoming gusty and variable. “These gusty conditions kept increasing as the aircraft came closer to the ground. Consequently, the pilot flying had to make continuous lateral corrections to keep along the centre line. The touchdown was on the centre line and normal,” said a senior official at the aviation regulatory body.

At touchdown, sources said, the tailwind component was around 10 knots to 12 knots, which was reported to the Air Traffic Control. Based on this, the runway was changed.

Top DGCA sources informed India Today Television that after the return of the A320 aircraft to Delhi, details from the digital flight data recorder have been downloaded and are being looked into, and based on the outcome, appropriate action will be taken.
