Dubai flight makes emergency landing at Tel Aviv

The Royal Jordanian Airbus A320 was forced to land in TLV after declaring an emergency due to low fuel.

Rescue forces at Ben Gurion airport had a tense few moments on Tuesday afternoon after a Royal Jordanian flight, which was making its way from Dubai to Amman, was forced to declare an emergency landing at the airport due to low fuel. The plane was granted permission and made a safe landing at 3.15pm.



The plane, an Airbus 320, arrived from the east and flew over Jordan. The plane apparently diverted due to difficult landing conditions at Amman's airport.

According to the website of Amman's Queen Alia International Airport, several flights were diverted away from the airport, likely due to weather conditions.


Royal Jordanian said in response, "The flight continued on to Tel Aviv and did not land in Amman due to poor weather conditions."
