Kolkata: A Hong Kong-bound Air India flight from Delhi carrying 216 passengers and 10 crew onboard made an unscheduled landing at the airport in Kolkata due to a technical problem early on Tuesday, an Air India official said.
The Dreamliner landed at the NSC Bose International Airport in Kolkata at 2.15 AM, he said. While some passengers have been sent back to Delhi through alternative arrangements, others have been accommodated at local hotels.
The plane is likely to depart from here this evening at about 7.30 PM, he said.
