IndiGo Planes Were Less Than Four Miles Apart Over Bengaluru; Collision Averted

On Tuesday night, the Air Traffic Controllers in tech hub, Bengaluru averted a major air tragedy when they raised an alarm to thwart two Indigo aircraftsfrom coming very close to each other. The aircraft’s traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS) was thus activated.

As reported by the Indian Express, two planes – 6E779 (Coimbatore to Hyderabad) and 6E6505 (Bengaluru to Kochi) were less than four miles apart when the ATC asked one of the planes to rise 36,000 feet and the other to climb 28,000 feet.
