Panaji: Nearly 300 passengers left stranded after Dubai-Goa flight cancelled

Panaji: An Air India flight to Goa from Dubai International Airport that was abruptly cancelled left about 300 passengers stranded. The passengers, mostly Indians which included children and few senior citizens had to wait over 15 hours at the airport.

The stranded passengers complained that they were not provided with any assistance and were left to fend for themselves. The fliers said that Air India flight AI994, which was to arrive at Goa International Airport at 4.35 pm, was cancelled at the last minute. They were not provided with any food or given any accommodation by Air India, the passengers complained.

"Air India cancelled flight in Dubai has us waiting in the airport for over 13 hours. No intimation, no hotels, no food, no direction, no staff in sight, a planeload of passengers aimlessly waiting around," said Mumbai-based creative professional Tanishaa Cunha. Cunha said that no social distancing was maintained which put the passengers at risk of contracting Covid.
