They did not divert when being made aware of the impact, the flight was half way to Dubai before they changed their mind!

"We informed the pilot about the hit," the airport director told the IANS news service. "The pilot said nothing was wrong with the plane as the systems were functioning normally. But we found some parts of the plane, like an antenna, on the ground."
