Two jetliners came as close as 25 seconds from one another, narrowly averting a mid-air collision over the Arabian Sea on Monday night.

Dubai-bound Emirates flight EK706 and Seychelles-bound Etihad flight EY622 flew close to Mumbai as Yemeni airspace has been closed.

The exact distance separating the two aircraft at the point closest to a collision not been disclosed.

The air traffic control in Mumbai instructed one of the planes to climb and another to descend to avoid a collision.

An investigation into the air traffic scare has been launched. Both airlines denied safety was compromised at any point during their flights.
