The media reported, citing Indian sources, that an Azur Air plane bound for the Indian city of Goa made an emergency landing after it was reported that there was a bomb on board and the plane landed in Uzbekistan.
According to the data, the flight, departing from the Russian city of Perm, was supposed to land at Dabolim Airport in the state of Goa, India, at 4:15 am (13:45 Moscow time).
Flight AZV2463, operated by Azur Air, was denied entry into Indian airspace, “re-routed after the director of Dabolim Airport (India) received an email that a bomb had been planted on the plane.”
On board were 238 passengers, including two children, and 7 crew members.
Last week, an Azur Air flight from Moscow to Goa made an emergency landing at Jamnagar Airport in the Indian state of Gujarat due to reports of an explosive device on board. After inspecting the aircraft, Indian security authorities did not find any suspicious devices on board.
