The CAA of Pakistan said that the plane landed in Karachi at 8:03 am (local time) after being airborne for 53 minutes. It has been on the ground for the last four hours. Passengers are being looked after. The plane is parked in the specified area where engineers are assessing the problem.”

The DGCA further stated that the fuel quantity kept on reducing, and the aircraft was diverted to Karachi in coordination with ATC. During the inspection, no visual leak was found from the left main tank.
