An international flight carrying Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to Hungary made an emergency landing in Turkmenistan after technical problems, officials said yesterday.
Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Memon told reporters that the flight operated by the national airline made an emergency landing at Ashgabat International Airport after the fuel pressure of one of the Boeing 777’s engines dropped.
“All passengers of the flight are safe,” he added.
Hasina was aboard the plane along with her entourage as she was on her way to Budapest for the International Water Summit 2016 to kick off today.
Shakil Meraj, Biman Bangladesh Airlines spokesman, said the technical problems were repaired, and the flight with 99 passengers and 22 crews members left for Budapest from
Ashgabat after a test run.
Hasina waited at the Ashgabat airport for nearly four hours, said a foreign ministry official.
