Aircrafts survived mid-air Collision

It was a miraculous escape for the two Indian aircrafts, Vistara and Air India, in the Mumbai airspace when they came too close in the mid air.

It all happened while the ‘Vistara flight’ came down to an altitude at which Air India was flying. “There was a message from the air traffic control to the pilots to keep the altitude at 27,000 ft, and they both took it carelessly,” ‘Vistara’ sources comments on the incident.

The air traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS) alarm went off at that point, but both the pilots handled the situation efficiently.

“The safety of our customers and staff is of paramount importance to us and at Vistara we diligently follow all the safety regulations and guidelines. In this particular incident, the resolution advisory (RA) got triggered due to conflicting traffic. Our pilot followed the SOP (standard operating procedure) to avoid it and carried out an uneventful landing. The matter is under investigation by relevant authorities.”, said Vistara spokesperson.
