The airline further said that no emergency was declared and the aircraft made a normal landing, adding that a replacement aircraft is being sent to Karachi that will take the passengers to Dubai.

A statement issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said passengers have been shifted to transit where they were being served refreshments, it was reported.
