Kolhapur-Mum flight cancellations ground passenger plans

Kolhapur: The frequent cancellation of the Kolhapur-Mumbai flight service has been causing a lot of inconvenience to air passengers.

The flight, which is scheduled thrice a week, has already been cancelled six times this month. The flight service authorities have given "operational reasons" as the cause every time through email and text messages — creating last-moment panic among passengers.

Samir Sheth, a frequent flyer to Mumbai, said, "The passengers have to face hardships when there are sudden cancellations. They may have connecting national or international flights from the Mumbai airport. Those flights are usually on time. Therefore, if the passengers don't reach Mumbai on time, then their entire schedule can get disturbed and cause them mental frustration. People have business meetings, medical appointments, and other personal reasons to reach Mumbai. Last moment cancellations spark panic. The 72-seat flight is usually fully booked and should be operated properly."
