An Airbus A320 operated by IndiGo experienced an uncommon occurrence on Monday while passing over the Guwahati to Mumbai route at a height of about 36,000 feet. The captain detected an Engine 1 stall warning signal that suddenly disappeared.
An official reported that IndiGo flight 6E-6812 briefly experienced an engine 1 stall warning signal as a result of a larger jet of a Boeing 777 aircraft travelling in the opposite direction of IndiGo’s A320 aircraft and creating “Wake Turbulence” mid-air.
After seeing the large Boeing (B-777) of Emirates cause wake turbulence, IndiGo’s flight was cruising normally and without incident to its destination.
At roughly 6:32 am, an IndiGo flight with a destination of Mumbai departed from Guwahati airport on time.
The massive jet aircraft crossed in the opposite direction of the Indigo flight, causing what is known as “wake turbulence,” according to reports.
The airline’s company has reported the incident to India’s aviation regulatory body, Director General Civil Aviation (DGCA), about the incident and there was no damage to the plane and passengers.
IndiGo declined to make any official comment on the above incident.
