PANAJI: A Goa-bound chartered flight from Russian capital Moscow with 240 passengers on board was diverted to Uzbekistan within the wee hours of Saturday following a bomb menace, police stated.
The flight was scheduled to land on the Dabolim airport in South Goa at 4.15 am, a senior police official stated. The flight (AZV2463) operated by Azur Air was diverted earlier than it entered the Indian air area, he stated.
“It was diverted after an e mail was obtained at 12.30 am by the Dabolim airport director that talked about a few bomb being planted on the aircraft,” the official stated.
The incident occurred practically two weeks after a Moscow-to-Goa flight made an emergency touchdown at Gujarat’s Jamnagar airport following a bomb menace.
