Patna-bound GoAir flight diverted as 177 passengers wait for 8 hours

Published on : Wednesday, May 15, 2019

A plane had to be diverted to Ranchi due to a technical glitch. The GoAir flight (G8.373) bound for Patna, carrying 177, including five infants, on board, which left the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) on Tuesday at 9.20am, was stranded for hours after it was diverted to Ranchi airport due to a technical glitch.

 

After sourcing spare parts from New Delhi and Mumbai, the aircraft departed for its original destination at 8pm, almost eight hours after its arrival time at Patna.
Following this, Patna-Bengaluru flight was rescheduled several times, causing a delay of more than eight hours, while passengers waited at Ranchi airport.

 

“My brother is travelling from IXR to BLR by GoAir G8 373, scheduled for departure@13:40 today, which was rescheduled@15:20. Now, the same has been rescheduled @ 19:30. Was told to just sit here for next 7hrs (sic),” tweeted Badal Goel, a passenger on the flight.

 

“GoAir flight G8 373 had to be diverted to Ranchi and a few spare parts had to be sourced from Delhi and Mumbai. All the passengers have been re-boarded from Ranchi on the same aircraft and it will take off to its original destination, Patna. After completing this sector, the aircraft will fly Patna–Ranchi and Ranchi–Bengaluru next,” a GoAir spokesperson said.
