Sources said the flight was cancelled as Maharashtra government on Sunday announced that only 25 flights will be operated in and out of Mumbai airport.
“The journey was very good,” said Pooja Patel, who landed in Vadodara from Delhi through an Indigo flight later in the day, but also appealed people to fly only if there is an emergency. “Some co-passengers carrying infants had to face a lot of difficulties managing luggage and infants in absence of trolleys,” she said.
Siddharth Chatterjee, working in an MNC at Noida, flew in to stay with his parents in Vadodara. “Since the company has allowed work from home, I will be staying with my parents,” he said adding that both airports took adequate precaution for safety of all the passengers.
