KQ E190 flight to Tanzania send passengers into panic, technical glitch


A Kenya Airways (KQ) flight headed to Dar es Salaam was on Friday evening forced to return to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) after the carrier registered yet another technical area.

The incident on the E190 flight sent passengers into panic as the technicality led to the deployment of oxygen masks.

The incident occurred when the flight was streaming through 38,000 feet at cruising altitude.

While confirming the incident to Citizen Digital, Kenya Airways Corporate Affairs office said affected passengers were re-booked on other flights.

The incidence comes just three months following another mid-air scare on its Nairobi bound flight from Mombasa when a false mechanical error triggered the aircraft’s warning system forcing the abortion of the flight.
