Indian low cost carrier IndiGo is the largest airline in that country, carrying more passengers than Air India or Jet Airways. Their all-Airbus A320 fleet serves 40 destinations with over 600 daily flights.
Back in February the pilots of IndiGo flight 237 from Ahmadabad to Jaipur “mistook a road running parallel to the Jaipur airport” and tried to land there.
“IndiGo Flight 6E-237 enroute Ahmedabad to Jaipur being operated with A320 aircraft VT-IGK was involved in EGPWS “TOO LOW TERRAIN” warning on 27 February 2016 when the aircraft was on finals during visual approach at runway 27 at Jaipur (VIJP). The Captain-in-command immediately took a precautionary measure and carried a go-around. The aircraft landed safely on subsequent ILS approach on runway 27.
The plane descended below 900 feet. A ground proximity warning system notified the cockpit. They pulled up, executed a go around, and landed at the airport. The pilots were dismissed this week.
