Air India plane makes emergency landing at Otopeni

An Air India Boeing 777 airplane with 320 passengers on board en route from New Delhi (India) to Frankfurt (Germany) was forced to make an emergency landing at Bucharest’s Otopeni Airport Saturday morning. The plane was flying over Romanian airspace when a fire alarm accidentally went off. A thorough check was carried out on the aircraft but no fire was discovered. Thirty-two firemen from the Otopeni Inspectorate for Emergency Situations arrived at the airport around 7:15 am, after the airplane pilot alerted the control tower about the landing. Passengers were evacuated from the plane during the check. None of them was injured. What activated the fire sensors is yet to be known.
