Emergency Landing For Indonesian Jetliner

AN Indonesian passenger jetliner made an emergency landing yesterday after encountering engine failure.

The plane, with 122 passengers and crew onboard, managed to land safely at Batam island in western Indonesia, and no one was injured.

The Boeing 737-200, operated by a small commercial airline, ran into difficulty shortly after taking off on an 80-minute flight from Tanjungpinang airport on Bintan island. The plane was still ascending when its crew requested permission to make an unscheduled landing at the nearest airstrip, Batam.
