On Monday evening when a 22-year-old male traveler complained of stomach pain, an Air India Express flight from Mangalore to Dammam was diverted to Mumbai.
AI IX 885 with 72 travelers on board took off from Mangalore at 6.15 pm. Inside a hour of the plane’s takeoff the traveler grumbled of a stomach pain he was suspected to be because of a kidney ailment and the plane must be re-routed.
“The traveler was taken to a hospital in Mumbai. He told our team individuals that he suffers from a kidney issue,” said an aircraft representative.
