El Al plane to Tel Aviv makes emergency landing in India with just one engine


An El Al flight that took off from Thailand on Monday on its way to Israel made a successful emergency landing with only one engine in Goa, India.

The Boeing 787 left Bangkok and made a planned stop in Phuket before the pilot noticed that the fuel leak indicator light was on, according to the Foreign Ministry.

The pilot then followed the protocol, shutting down the damaged engine and landing in Goa state in western India.

The Foreign Ministry has contacted local authorities, allowing passengers to stay overnight at a nearby hotel after each of them has undergone PCR tests, as required in India.

None of the passengers were injured as a result of the emergency landing.

The crews who inspected the plane found no indication of a leak and held discussions with Boeing manufacturers to determine what caused the indicator light to illuminate.
