15 flights cancelled in a single day

Ahmedabad: Fifteen flights operating from Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) airport in Ahmedabad were cancelled on Thursday.

These include flights to Lucknow, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi, Chandigarh, Goa, Dehradun, Jaipur, and Chennai. Flights were cancelled due to operational constraints, according to sources.

This is primarily because of infrequent passenger movement at the city airport, and airlines are not finding it viable to operate flights with inadequate passenger load.

On Wednesday, too, 16 flights were cancelled from the city airport. Flight cancellations have been widely reported since the second wave of Covid-19 infections gripped Gujarat and other parts of India. Amid widespread apprehensions over travelling, passenger footfalls have drastically reduced at city airport, according to airport sources.
