DUBAI – An Iranian plane made an emergency landing at a Teheran airport, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported on Saturday (Jan 25).
The plane was en route from Teheran to Istanbul but returned because of a technical problem and landed safely at Mehrabad airport without any injuries to passengers or crew, Mehr reported, citing an official at the Imam Khomeini airport, the departure point of the plane.
The report did not provide any additional details about the technical problem encountered by the plane, which belonged to the Iran Airtour company.
A picture of the aeroplane posted on social media did not appear to show any damage.
Reuters could not independently verify the authenticity of the photo.
