"AI 973 Delhi Muscat flt diverted to Jamnagar Air Force Base at 2230 with an Indian passenger aged 33 sufferng cardiac arrest in flight. IAF responded promptly. Diversion to civil airfield wd hv taken more time. Patient shifted to hospital accompanied by IAF doc," PRO Defence Gujarat Puneet Chadha said in a tweet late on Sunday night.
He later said patient was taken to Guru Govind Singh Hospital for treatment.
Name of the patient was not know immediately.
It is rare when commercial flights are allowed to land on IAF bases.
However, Chadha said in the tweet that IAF responded quickly as the flight diversion to civil air field would have taken more time.
