Flight from Goa circled for 10-15 minutes before landing

Ahmedabad: A flight from Goa which was scheduled to arrive at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) airport in Ahmedabad on Tuesday evening, could not make a swift landing at the city airport due to poor visibility. Airport sources confirmed that the flight, which was scheduled to land at 5pm, circled around the airport for a good 10-15 minutes.

“As heavy rain lashed various parts of Ahmedabad on Tuesday evening, visibility at the city airport was poor. As a consequence, the air traffic controller directed a go-around to the pilot following which the flight landed safely with a minor delay,” said a source privy to the development.

Meanwhile flight departures and the arrival of one flight from and to SVPI airport got delayed on Tuesday. These include flights to Delhi, Kuwait, Goa and Jaipur, whose departures were delayed and the arrival of a flight from Chennai which was also delayed. Sources confirmed that a Chennai-bound flight was also cancelled from the city airport.
