A SpiceJet flight that took off for Nashik in Maharashtra from the Indira Gandhi International Airport on Thursday, 1 September, returned midway to the national capital due to an 'autopilot' snag, a DGCA official said.

“The aircraft made a normal landing at Delhi and passengers disembarked normally,” SpiceJet said in the statement.

SpiceJet B737 aircraft VT-SLP, operating flight SG-8363 (Delhi-Nashik), on Thursday was involved in an air turnback due to an autopilot snag, the official said.

Facing financial turbulence amid high fuel prices and rupee depreciation, SpiceJet aircraft have been involved in a series of incidents in the past as well, following which the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had issued a show-cause notice to the airline.

On 27 July, the aviation safety regulator had also ordered the airline to operate a maximum of 50 per cent of its flights for eight weeks.
