DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Emirates airline says one of its A380 passenger planes has been forced to make an emergency landing in India due to a technical problem.

The Dubai-based carrier said the flight from Bangkok to Dubai was diverted to Hyderabad, India, early Sunday because of "a technical snag in the aircraft."

Is says all 410 passengers exited the plane safely.

Emirates is one of a handful of carriers flying the A380, the world's largest passenger plane. A Qantas A380 made an emergency landing in Singapore last November when one of its engines blew out shortly after takeoff.
