Royal Jordanian plane makes emergency landing in Kuwait

A Royal Jordanian airplane made an emergency landing in Kuwait today due to a change in temperatures in the plane's storage room.

According to media report, the plane was heading to Doha, Qatar from Jordan. However, the captain felt a change in temperatures when a smoke alarm was heard, which prompted the captain to make an emergency landing in the nearest airport, which was Kuwait.

For his part, the Executive Assistant of the Director of the RJ for Communication and Information Affairs, Bassel Al-Kilani, confirmed that the plane will take off in an hour and a half.

Meanwhile, the Kuwait DGCA said in a statement that the airport received a contact from the plane pilot at 12:07 (local time), requesting to make an emergency landing. Authorities at the Kuwait airport dealt with the situation according to standard security and safety precautions, the authority said. All passengers on board were evacuated.
