A Karachi-bound flight from Madina took off with a faulty air-conditioning system over the weekend, putting passengers at risk.

The arrival of Saudi Arabian Airlines flight SV-706 was delayed by more than three hours due to this incident.

Sources claim that many pilgrims fainted on board due to suffocation and a rise in cabin temperature.

A source at Karachi airport confirmed the incident.

The cabin crew learnt about a technical problem after all passengers had boarded the aircraft.

A video confirming this went viral on social media.
