Hyderabad / New Delhi: A mid-air mishap was averted recently thanks to an auto-generated warning after a SpiceJet aircraft came in close proximity of an overflying Emirates plane in Indian airspace.

The incident, which occurred on August 11 involving a SpiceJet Hyderabad flight from Chennai (SG 511) and an Emirates' Dubai-bound Brisbane flight (EK 433), is currently being investigated by the aviation regulator, said DGCA sources.

 

As per reports, the SpiceJet flight was cleared for 34,000 ft and was advised to standby to climb further. “However, SG 511 climbed above the permitted level without clearance. It was then asked to maintain 35,000 ft but the aircraft overshot by a 1,000 ft, a level that EK 433 was maintaining," sources were quoted as saying.
