The Reason Why Jet Airways Plane Lost Contact Over Germany

Updated on 21 February, 2017 at 5:58 pm By

German Air Force scrambled two fighter jets for a Jet Airways flight after the Cologne air traffic control could not establish contact with the Indian aircraft due to a reported communication failure.

The Boeing-777 was flying from Mumbai to London and had more than 300 people on board. The plane caused a mid-air scare when the cockpit crew did not respond to ATC communications.

“Contact between Jet Airways flight 9W 118, from Mumbai to London Heathrow, of February 16, 2017, and the local ATC was briefly lost while flying over German airspace,” a Jet Airways statement said in Mumbai.

The statement further added that as a precaution, the German Air Force deployed its aircraft to ensure the safety of the flight and its guests, and communication was safely restored within a few minutes.

“The flight with 330 guests and 15 crew subsequently landed at London without any incident,” the statement said.

Jet Airways duly reported the matter to the concerned authorities, including the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

Media report said that a change of frequency by the crew by mistake was being suspected as the cause.

“As part of the standard process, the flight crew of 9W 118 has been de-rostered pending investigation,” it added.
