Mumbai-Gaya flight becomes operational

Gaya: The Mumbai-Gaya inaugural flight of IndiGo airlines, Airbus 320 landed at the runway of Gaya airport at 12.28 pm on Friday. Gaya airport director (APD) Dilip Kumar said, “The inaugural flight had 62 passengers on board, who flew to Gaya from Mumbai. On return, the Gaya-Mumbai flight had 160 passengers on board, who flew to Mumbai from Gaya.”

On arrival, the passengers were given water salute. In this welcoming ritual, also known as a shower of affection, two fire engines parked on either side of the runway use their water cannons to create a giant arc above a plane as it taxies to its gate.
