A Singapore Airlines flight enroute to Mumbai was forced to discontinue the approach to landing and do a "go-around" before landing nine minutes behind the scheduled time.
The airlines, with 245 passengers and 14 crew members onboard, attributed the incident to "poor" visibility.
"Singapore Airlines flight SQ422, operating from Singapore to Mumbai on December 4, was scheduled to land on runway 09 at CSIA at 1035 hrs. Due to poor visibility conditions, the crew discontinued the approach to runway 09 at approximately 1,000 feet, in accordance with standard operating procedures," the airline said in a statement published by NDTV.
NDTV's report, citing an unidentified Air Traffic Control source, said the pilot mistook the Juhu airport runway for the assigned runway 09 of the Chhtarapati Shivaji International airport (CSIA).
The airlines, however, denied the allegations.
"At no time did the pilots of SQ 422 mistake Juhu airport as Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport," Singapore Airlines said.
Shares in Singapore Airlines were unchanged at S$10.48. The stock has gained 9 percent over an year.
