Ranchi: A Kolkata-bound flight was on Saturday grounded at the Ranchi airport after it developed a technical snag, officials told sources. The technical snag was detected while the aircraft was taking off from the airport.
“The air-conditioner of the plane developed a snag and it stopped working. So, the flight was grounded for repair works,” Ranchi airport director Vinod Sharma told sources.
The 72-seater IndiGo flight with 62 passengers on board was to take off around 9 AM when the snag was detected. However, the airport authorities said alternative arrangements were made for the passengers.
