An All Nippon Airways (ANA) Boeing 737-800, operating on a domestic flight, returned to its departure point on Saturday after a crack was discovered in the cockpit window, a spokesperson for the Japanese airline said.

Flight 1182 was heading to Toyama Airport, but turned around to return to Sapporo-New Chitose Airport after #x27;a crack had been noticed on the outermost part of the four layers of windows surrounding the cockpit, the spokesperson said, adding that there were no injuries among the 59 passengers and the six crew members.

The crack did not affect the control or pressurization of the aircraft, he added.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the American aviation regulatory authority, decided on Friday to extend indefinitely the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX 9 to carry out new safety checks and announced his intention to strengthen the supervision of the aeronautical group itself.

At the start of the week, a fuselage part of a Boeing 737 MAX 9, operated by Alaska Airlines ALK.N, was found detached in mid-flight, which forced the crew to turn back.
