Mumbai, May 25:
Over 80 flights were stated to be cancelled, at Delhi airport, including an Air India flight (AI-617- Mumbai-Hyderabad flight) were cancelled and other incoming and outgoing flights were delayed, even as domestic flight operations resumed at the Mumbai airport on Monday.
The Air India flight (AI-617), Mumbai-Hyderabad flight which was to depart from Mumbai at 2.10 PM was cancelled. The incoming Hyderabad-Mumbai (Vistara airlines) flight was the only flight to land before time (at 2.09 PM as against scheduled time of 2.15 PM).
In Mumbai, the arrival list included the flights from Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Chandigad, Bengaluru and Hyderabad, while the departure list included the flights to Hyderabad, Delhi, Thiruananthpuram, Lucknow, Abu Dhabi, Delhi, Bengaluru and Kolkatta. Vistara, Indigo, Air Asia, Go Air and Spice Jet, had scheduled to run these flights.
As domestic flights resumed at several airports across India, after two months since the coronavirus lockdown was imposed, there was confusion and chaos at airports in Delhi, Mumbai and other cities as a large number of flights were cancelled and passengers complained that they did not get any notification from the airlines.
The angry passengers at Terminal III of Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport claimed  that they were not informed till the last minute. Airport officials said the cancellations were  on account of many states telling the centre that they will not be able to operate flights agreed upon earlier. The Delhi airport was to handle a total of 125 departures and 118 arrivals on Monday. Similarly 9 flights were cancelled at Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport.
The chaotic scenes were witnessed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai, with several passengers seen sitting outside the airport after their flights were cancelled.
