At least 36 passengers were injured during a Jet Airways flight in India Thursday after the plane lost cabin pressure and was forced to make an emergency landing.

According to, Jet Airways Flight 9W697 from Mumbai to Jaipur was forced to turn around shortly after takeoff when the flight crew forgot to flip a switch that maintains cabin pressure, causing oxygen masks to be deployed.

There were 166 passengers on the Indian airline’s flight, and those who suffered injuries reported headaches and bleeding from the nose or ears, according to the Directorate-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

As a result of the incident, officials from Jet Airways revealed the cockpit crew had been removed from active duty until a formal investigation could be completed.

Videos of the incident and the injured passengers quickly went viral on social media, which couldn’t have come at a worse time for Jet Airways as the carrier posted losses of about $189 million for the April-June quarter.
