A Mumbai-bound Vistara flight returned to Varanasi after it suffered a bird-hit, aviation regulator DGCA said.

Vistara A320 aircraft VT-TNC operating flight UK622 (Varanasi-Mumbai) was involved in an air turnback to Varanasi due to a bird-hit. The aircraft has landed safely in Varanasi and the radome is damaged. It has been declared aircraft on ground (AOG), the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said.

In a statement, a spokesperson of the private carrier said: "Vistara flight UK622 operating from Varanasi to Mumbai on August 5 turned back to Varanasi due to a bird strike during departure. Due to a maintenance inspection of the aircraft being required, another aircraft has been sent from Delhi to Varanasi to fly the passengers to Mumbai. It has been our constant endeavour to minimise inconvenience to our customers in such unavoidable situations whilst keeping safety as our topmost priority."

This is the second such incident of bird-hit. A Go First flight operating from Ahmedabad to Chandigarh was diverted to Ahmedabad after a bird-hit on Wednesday. IANS
