The Egyptian Nile Air Company said on Thursday that an airplane flying to Kuwait returned back to Cairo International Airport due to a technical error.
Source explained that the pilot sent a signal to the control tower requesting to fly back 30 minutes after departing from departing Cairo airport.
Cairo airport operators allowed the plane to land and recalled the airport’s maintenance team to repair the technical error.
The passengers are being kept in a transit hall until the airplane is ready to fly.
