ALERT Shaheen Air flight Dubai-Lahore in emergency ‘Mayday’ call

A passenger flight from Dubai to Lahore on Monday experienced low cabin pressure as the pilot called ‘mayday.’

The aircraft was flying at 37,000ft when the pilot made the call, after it suffered low pressure inside the plane.

The Air Traffic Controller asked the pilot to bring the aircraft down by 16,000ft to 21,000ft which helped improved the air pressure in the cabin.

Guided by the Air Traffic Controller, the aircraft later landed safely at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport. Independent News Pakistan said the 767 aircraft was operated by the private Pakistani carrier Shaheen Air.
