New Delhi: A sick passenger forced an emergency landing at Jodhpur airport for an IndiGo flight from Jeddah to Delhi on Tuesday after she became ill and needed to be airlifted to a local hospital, where she was later pronounced dead. Mitra Bano, a 61-year-old passenger, was transported to Jodhpur’s Goyal Hospital and Research Centre.

“My mother complained of pain in her chest. I immediately informed the crew and it decided to go for an emergency landing in Jodhpur,” he said.
This occurs just a few weeks after a 60-year-old passenger on an IndiGo flight from Madurai to Delhi began bleeding in the middle of the flight, necessitating an emergency landing at Indore airport. However, he was declared dead by doctors at a nearby hospital. The passenger was a Noida resident.
A source in the hospital said: “The woman had a cardiac arrest and was declared brought dead. We conducted legal formalities and arranged a transport for her son so that he could take her body home by road.” The flight was at the airport for over an hour and then left for Delhi, the officials said.
