A Jet Airways aircraft from Mumbai with 125 passengers and six crew members onboard landed under emergency conditions here after it suffered a bird hit.

The plane, however, made a safe landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport, Jet Airways said.

“Jet Airways flight 9W 268 Mumbai to Kathmandu B737 experienced a bird ingestion on approach and continued the flight with an uneventful and safe landing at Kathmandu,” the airline said in a statement.

The airline engineering team is inspecting the aircraft and once satisfied, it will release the aircraft for further operations, it said.
