On Tuesday, a major mishap was averted at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi after an Indigo and a SpiceJet aircraft came face to face on the taxiway.
"An Indigo flight 6C-729 which came from Lucknow to Delhi with 176 passengers on board, post landing, saw on the taxiway a SpiceJet aircraft in front of it," Indigo spokesperson told IANS.
In a statement, the official also clarified that there was no "unfortunate incident" or a "close shave-off as reported by a section of the media".
