SpiceJet 737 Max 8 diverts after engine fault mid-flight
737 Max 8

A SpiceJet Boeing 737 Max 8 suffered an engine issue en-route to Delhi on 6 January 2019.

The Indian low-cost carrier says that the aircraft was operating flight SG32 from Hong Kong, when the flight crew noticed a low fuel warning for its number one engine.

The crew diverted the flight to Varanasi where it landed without incident.

SpiceJet adds that an inspection found a fuel control value had malfunctioned and is being replaced.

Aircraft tracking sites identify the aircraft as bearing the registration VT-MAX, which Flight Fleets Analyzer shows was built in 2018 and is owned by ICBC Leasing.
