The flight left around 1.20 a.m., but half an hour later, the pilot noticed that the smoke detector in the cargo hold had gone off. He piloted the plane back for an emergency landing.
The passengers were transferred to another aircraft hours later and it left the city around 4.30 a.m.
IndiGo, in a statement, said: “After take-off from Chennai, the pilot observed a momentary message of the smoke detector in the aft cargo compartment. As a precaution, he returned to Chennai. After arrival, it was confirmed that the message was false. The aircraft will be back in operations shortly. Alternate arrangements for all the passengers were made.” ■
