"The government has taken serious note of the incidents and would review the issues in the upcoming meeting," the source said on Sunday.

On Thursday, budget airline IndiGo's Kolkata-bound flight had to return to Chennai and the airline said that it was the result of "technical caution" noted by the crew.

"The crew followed the normal operating procedures and asked for a priority landing. There was no engine shutdown and no emergency landing was declared," the airline said in a statement on Saturday.
