As many as 30 passengers suffered bleeding and headache due to low air pressure inside the cabin of a Jaipur-bound Jet Airways flight on Thursday. Around 30 passengers experienced nose and ear bleeds while, some even complained of headache.

"During the climb, crew forgot to select bleed switch due to which cabin pressurization could not be maintained, and oxygen masks got deployed", the official said. "The flight's cockpit crew has been taken off scheduled duties pending investigation". The Civil Aviation ministry has asked aviation regulator DGCA for a report on the incident.

Confirming the incident, a Jet Airways spokesperson said, "All passengers were deplaned and first aid was administered to those who complained of ear pain, bleeding nose".

It was carrying 166 passengers and five crew members.

MoCA has taken cognizance of the incident in flight 9W 697 earlier today and has requested DGCA to file its report immediately on the issue.
