After Ethiopian Crash, Saudia Plane Aborts Malaysia Flight




A Saudia plane that was due to fly from the King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, was made to return back to the King Abdul Aziz International Airport terminal in few minutes into the flight.

Naija News reports that the plane had to return to the terminal after a mother who was onboard the aircraft left her child in the terminal of King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia where the airplane took-off from.

This is coming after the Ethiopian Airline’s Boeing 737 Max crashed with at least 150 persons onboard.

Video footage obtained by Naija News captured the moment when the baffled air control operators were speaking by radio with the pilots, who were doing their best to explain the bizarre situation

“May God be with us. Can we come back or what?” the pilot can be heard asking the air traffic controllers.

“This flight is requesting to come back…a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing,” the pilot continued.

Reports revealed that the air traffic staff then furthered to ask the pilot to confirm the story before the flight was approved to return back to the terminal where it had taken=off from.
