Much to the relief of the passengers and the crew,  despite the technical snag, the pilot safely landed the flight at Bengaluru Airport. The medical personnel and fire brigade were strategically placed on the runway to avoid any emergencies that may arise during the landing. Engineers examined the aircraft and later stated that immediate repairs weren’t possible due to the high budgets required. So, this resulted in cancelling the flight. The passengers had no choice but to de-board the flight due to this unexpected development which resulted in major inconvenience.
