A Delhi-bound Jet Airways plane from Leh, with 125 passengers on board, made an emergency landing at the Jaipur International Airport (JIA) as it was unable to land at the destination due to bad weather and was running low on fuel, an airport official said.

The aircraft landed safely and all passengers were safe, he said.

The plane from Leh reached Delhi but it could not land there due to adverse weather conditions, JIA director J S Balhara said.
