May 8, 2019

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A plane flown by a subsidiary of Air France heading from Paris to Mumbai has made an emergency landing in central Iran.

The Airbus A340 flown by the low-cost carrier Joon landed in the city of Isfahan on Wednesday.

Joon said in a statement the plane, operating as flight number AF218, landed out of precaution over a malfunctioning ventilation circuit.

Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency said local authorities are providing services to passengers, all of whom were in good health.

It wasn’t immediately clear when the flight would take off.
