An Ethiopian Airlines freighter flight landed and parked safely in Mumbai Airport on Sunday after a full emergency was reported due to a hydraulic leakage.

The flight had taken off from Riyadh and was on its way to Bengaluru. It was diverted to Mumbai after the glitch was detected.

The freighter ET-690, with eight crew members, landed safely, a spokesperson of Mumbai airport said.

"Full emergency was declared for freighter flight ET690 Ethiopian airlines from Riyadh to Bangalore diverted to Mumbai due to hydraulic leakage. The aircraft landed safely and parked," the Mumbai International Airport Limited informed.

There was some technical problem with the Ethiopian cargo aircraft, the official added.

According to the Mumbai Fire Department, as many as three fire engines, one rescue van and other essential vehicles had been deployed to the Airport for the emergency landing.

The aircraft is currently parked at the airport where technical and engineering teams are examining it even as the emergency was withdrawn and normal operations resumed in the afternoon, sources said.
