A Jet Airways flight climbed thousands of feet in a few minutes leaving passengers requiring hospital treatment after they bled due to a loss of cabin pressure. Civil Aviation Ministry has taken cognizance of the matter and have asked DGCA to file a report immediately.

The incident was reported on board a Mumbai-Jaipur Jet Airways flight on Thursday.

Video footage shot by one of the passengers shows the moment when the oxygen masks were deployed to compensate the cabin pressure drop. As many as 30 passengers said they suffered from nose-bleed.

"After we took off the air-conditioner malfunctioned, then air pressure system malfunctioned too and oxygen masks came out".

Since the plane's crew were not able to maintain the cabin pressure, they chose to return to Mumbai keeping the safety of passengers in mind.

Passenger Darshak Hath said there has also been issues with the plane's air conditioning after it took off from Mumbai.

In January, two Jet Airways pilots were grounded for getting into a brawl and storming out of the cockpit briefly during a New Year's Day flight from London to Mumbai.
