Mumbai-Sharjah Air India Express flight diverted due to bad weather

Sharjah: An Air India Express flight flying from the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai, was supposed to land at the Sharjah International Airport at 1:25am.

However, the flight that departed around 11:40pm was diverted to Al Ain International Airport this morning (Sunday).

Bad weather and poor visibility were blamed for the same, though some passengers affirmed that the sky was clear.

"We have been stranded at the Al Ain International Airport for almost four hours," Dr Yasmin Shaikh, an Indian passenger onboard, told Khaleej Times on Sunday morning.

The aircraft later took off and landed at the Sharjah International Airport at 6:30am, Dr Shaikh, who is working as a designation director marketing and business development with Avivo Group, added.

"We were told that both Dubai and Sharjah airports refused to let our aircraft land."

The flight ever took late, she pointed out.

"We were also supposed to fly from India at 11:40pm, but the aircraft took off late at 12:10am."

Another passenger, who wished to remain anonymous, said that the sad part was that all passengers received no update bout the delays from crew members.
