The jet blast from a Spice Jet plane shattered the windows of IndiGo Bus leaving five people injured. Jet blast is the strong force of hot air that aircraft engines push behind, while landing or before taking off.
The injured people were immediately taken to the airport clinic. A spokesperson of Spice Jet stated that the bus got broken from the force of the jet blast at Indira Gandhi International Airport at 4:50 pm on Friday.
The Mumbai bound flight ensured proper medical assistance to all the injured people before its departure from Delhi. The aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation is investigating the incident.
When enquired about this incident, Spice Jet went on to say:” It is also too early to apportion responsibility as the pilots were following normal procedures… In any case we have informed the regulator and the airline is closely cooperating with all assistance. There was no damage to the window panes of any aircraft.”
