  • Air passengers bleed from eyes and nose during flight

The flight, which was traveling from Mumbai to Jaipur, had to return shortly after oxygen masks were deployed.

This fact initiated the investigation, at the end of which it was chose to keep the crew from working.

"One of them, Satish Nair, stated that the airline staff did not provide passengers with any explanation about what was happening: "no staff to help", he said in a tweet, ".no announcement on board to wear the oxygen mask".

One middle-aged male passenger was brought to the Dr Balabhai Nanavati Hospital in suburban Vile Parle by Jet Airways officials.

MoCA has taken cognizance of the incident in flight 9W 697 earlier today and has requested DGCA to file its report immediately on the issue.

Jet Airways said it "regrets the inconvenience" caused to its guests and offered to arrange alternate flights for all affected passengers. "First aid was administered to a few guests who complained of ear pain, bleeding nose etc".

A Jet Airways flight from Mumbai to Jaipur turned into a nightmare when passengers started experiencing awful injuries due to a cabin pressure fault.

Following the incident, the aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport here.

At least 30 passengers on the flight, which was carrying 171 people, started bleeding after the crew forgot to switch on the system to maintain cabin pressure.

A Jet Airways spokesperson said: "All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal".

Raj Sivakumar, senior vice-president for sales & distribution said the decision comes from the fact that guests, especially the millennials, wish to be empowered and exercise their right of choice and globally service models in the airlines' space change every day.

The airline said it was co-operating fully with the DGCA investigation.

Mumbai-based Jet Airways, which reported its biggest quarterly loss since 2015, is seeking to raise funds and pare debt as part of a turnaround plan it announced in August.

In a statement posted to its Facebook page, Jet Airways confirmed that 5 passengers were taken to a hospital for medical attention after the plane landed, but did not confirm what caused the injuries.
