Mumbai: A GoAir flight from Mumbai to Delhi with 173 passengers on board was diverted to Amritsar due to ATC "congestion" today delaying its arrival in Delhi by nearly three-and-a-half hours.

Its scheduled arrival in New Delhi was 2.20 PM. "However, the flight was diverted to Amritsar where it landed at 3 PM. We remained seated in the aircraft till it took off for New Delhi at 4.57 PM," said a woman passenger who was travelling to Delhi to attend a family function.
