A 53-year-old air hostess suffered serious injuries after falling off an Air India aircraft which was getting ready for departure for New Delhi from the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai, a source told PTI on Monday, 15 October.

Air India said it is investigating.

Citing sources, a Times of India report said the woman's right leg had a fracture and she underwent a CT scan at the hospital.

The flight bound for Delhi and scheduled to depart at 7 am, finally departed at 8.30 am. Dr. Rajendra Patankar, COO, Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital said. "She is being treated under Dr Prakash M Doshi, Director of Orthopedics and Traumatology and is now under observation".

Three years ago, an Air India engineer was sucked into an aircraft's engine at the Mumbai airport when the pilots started the engines prematurely after mistaking a signal. No passengers or crew members sustained any injuries. "An investigation will be carried out to determine the exact cause of the incident". IndiGo has been facing problems with the Pratt & Whitney engines powering its A320 neo aircraft, Sputnik reported last week.

The incident is the latest in recent weeks involving an Indian carrier after 30 passengers needed to receive treatment after suffering nose and ear bleeds on a flight from Mumbai to Jaipur due to low pressure in the cabin.

Also in September, an Air India aircraft landed on the wrong runway, which was under construction, posing a threat to the lives of 136 passengers and four crew members on board.

"I will never fly Air India, can not believe this pilot was unaware of the danger he put his crew and passengers in", one Twitter user commented.

However, after two hours the aircraft was ordered to return back to Mumbai, India by ground control.
