A Chennai-bound Air India flight from the city airport with 87 passengers on-board landed safely in 'full emergency' in Mumbai on Monday after the pilot reported a technical snag in the aircraft, a Mumbai airport official said.

The flight IC-572 took off from the Chhtarapati Shivaji International Airport (domestic terminal) at 06.33 pm for Chennai.

After being airborne for around 20 minutes, it returned to Mumbai airport at 06.54 pm due to a technical problem, a Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) official said.

"The flight returned and landed safely at 06.54 pm in full emergency. Full emergency was withdrawn at 06.57 pm," the MIAL spokesperson said.

All the passengers are safe, an Air India spokesperson said, adding another aircraft has been arranged to operate the flight which is scheduled to take off shortly.
