Nagpur, Aug 13, 2019 –
A Nagpur-Delhi IndiGo flight with Union Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari aboard, aborted take-off after the pilots noticed a technical fault, official sources said here on Tuesday.
The flight, 6E-636, returned from the taxiway after the pilot made an announcement asking all passengers to deboard.
The passengers were awaiting an alternative arrangement by the airline, but details of the technical ‘defect’ in the aircraft were not known.
The aircraft, an A-320, was carrying around 143 passenger and the aborted take-off was reportedly due to an ‘indication error’.
Gadkari was scheduled to travel to Delhi from Nagpur on Tuesday morning. (Agency)
