Patna: A New Delhi-bound GoAir flight from Lucknow made an unscheduled landing at the Jayaprakash Narayan International Airport here Friday morning triggering protests by passengers, airport authorities said.
The flight, landed at Patna at 9 am for accommodating passengers from here to Delhi and was stranded here for more than one and a half hours because of non-clearance from the
Air Traffic Control due to poor visibility, they said.
While some passengers claimed they were asked to disembark and allow the flight to take Haj pilgrims to Delhi, authorities denied the claims.
The passengers, however, lodged protests for the unscheduled landing, as many complained that they had missed their connecting flights to other destinations from Delhi, the sources said.
The flight left for Delhi at around 11.20 am, they said.
They denied that the flight made an emergency landing because of operational reasons.
