Flight cancellation leaves paddlers in the lurch

Vijayawada: Twenty-two paddlers were left in the lurch when Spicejet cancelled its flight (SG 3282) bound for Aizawl from Guwahati citing “technical reasons.”

All the players, who arrived from New Delhi and Mumbai by the same airlines, were to take the connecting flight to the Mizoram capital to participate in the ongoing 11Even Sports National-ranking (East Zone) Championships on Thursday, according to information received here.
But soon after their arrival at Guwahati, they were told that the flight to Aizawl would not take off and they would be accommodated only on Friday.

In fact, group matches in the sub-junior and cadet boys and girls’ categories will begin at 9 a.m. as per the original schedule, followed by the main draw events the following day, which is also the concluding day of the six-day championship.
