Another flight was also affected by technical issues.

A Pakistan International Airline (PIA) flight bound for UAE landed safely after it developed a technical issue while enroute to the country.

PIA flight PK 257 developed a fault in its landing soon after takeoff. It was travelling from Peshawar to Sharjah. After repeated attempts to close the landing gear, the pilot swerved around and landed back at Peshawar airport. More than 100 passengers were onboard, Tribune reports.

Another PIA flight was also affected by technical issues. The engine of flight PK 650, from Lahore to Islamabad, malfunctioned and shut down after reportedly ingesting a foreign object. The pilot switched the engine off and landed the plane safely. There were 38 passengers onboard, all of whom were unhurt.
