Jet Airways aircraft with stranded Indians lands in Delhi

 A Jet Airways aircraft carrying 242 persons including 28 crew members, who were stranded in Belgian capital Brussels following the deadly terror attack on airport and metro station, reached India from Amsterdam Friday morning.

 
The flight landed at Delhi's Indira Gandhi airport here at around 5:30, a Jet Airways spokesperson said.
 
The flight had 214 passengers and 28 crew members, the spokesperson added. 
 
Jet Airways flight 9W1229 from Amsterdam to Delhi and then onwards to Mumbai had departed from Amsterdam at 4:54 p.m. local time Thursday after the airline combined its Mumbai flight with it.
 
The airline had yesterday announced it would fly three flights, one each to Mumbai, Delhi and Toronto from Amsterdam to fly its passengers, who were stuck in Brussels due to the deadly terror attack on the airport and metro station in the Belgian capital on Tuesday.
 
However, the airline cancelled Mumbai flight due to a snag in the aircraft and combined it with Delhi flight.
