Emirates said that the aircraft had to be towed because of the fault. The airline apologized to passengers for any inconvenience.
“Emirates can confirm Flight EK21 from Dubai to Manchester on 27 August 2019 experienced a technical fault after landing in Manchester. As a precautionary measure, the aircraft was towed to the terminal and checked by the local authorities,” the airline said.
“All passengers disembarked safely and engineers are in the process of fixing the technical issue. Emirates apologizes for any inconvenience caused,” Emirates added.
Writing on social media, one passenger claimed the fault had caused delays on the ground. Manchester airport has said its services are running as normal after it briefly had to run single runway operations.
Despite the technical difficulties, the Dubai to Manchester flight arrived at its scheduled time. There has been no knock-on effect on other flights at Manchester.
