Poor visibility hits flight operations at Patna airport

Patna: Flight operations at Jayaprakash Narayan International (JPNI) Airport, Patna remained disrupted for the second consecutive day on Monday due to poor visibility and other operational reasons.
According to sources at Patna airport, of 39 flights operated Monday from Patna airport on Monday, nine were delayed due to poor visibility and bad weather conditions, while a GoAir flight was cancelled due to operational reasons.

Passengers seemed restless after three-hour delay in arrival of Chennai-bound flight of SpiceJet (SG-323/324). Angry passengers were seen making rounds of the airline’s counter to enquire about the flight. Chennai-Patna-Channai flight arrived at city airport at 3.13pm against its scheduled arrival time of 12.20pm and departed at 6.22pm.

Sudhir Singh Shrivastava, a flyer, said the airline did not intimate the passengers about the delay. “They even failed to update the correct timing on display board. No executive of the airline helped the passengers when they enquired about the flight,” he said.

A SpiceJet executive said the flight was delayed because of bad weather conditions in Bengaluru. “All other flights departed from Patna airport on time,” the executive added.
