A Qatar Airways passenger plane en route from Istanbul to Doha had to make an emergency landing at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport on Thursday.

Qatar Airways Flight 240 was forced to make the emergency landing shortly after take-off due to a technical fault in its left engine, an airport official speaking anonymously told Anadolu Agency.

After the pilot of the Airbus A300-330 received landing permission, the plane touched down without any further problems, the source added.
