Ahmedabad: Glitch, closure delay 5 flights

Ahmedabad: The departure of five flights to various destinations was delayed from Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) Airport on Monday. Two flights operated by Indigo Airlines — 6E-351 to Pune and 6E-15 to Delhi — were delayed by about an hour. Three more flights operated by SpiceJet — SG-15 to Dubai, SG-8912 to Delhi, and SG-928 to Bengaluru — were also delayed.
Well-placed sources confirmed that the Indigo-operated aircraft which was to fly to Pune developed a minor technical glitch ahead of the departure and had to be inspected for safety. That caused the delay.
Sources also said that 6E-15 originated from Istanbul and was scheduled to fly to Delhi. However, owing to the Pakistan airspace’s closure, the flight had to land in Ahmedabad for refuelling.
