A Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight from Singapore with 210 passengers made an emergency landing at Dhaka airport this evening after one of its engines sent false fire alarm, official said.
Contacted Biman’s Director Engineering MM Asaduzzaman told The Daily Star that due to a false fire warning at engine number two, the captain of the aircraft, Airbus310, sought for the emergency landing at Hazarat Shahjalal International Airport around 8:45pm.
This may happen due to electric short- circuit. “We are assessing whether there is any damage to the engine,” he added.
All emergency services including fire units were kept on alert following the emergency call by the pilot, sources said.
