Passengers face a harrowing time at airport

New Delhi: Union Minister of State for Railways E. Ahamed and Supreme Court judge Justice P Sathasivam were among a host of air travellers who virtually had to run from pillar to post after an Air India aircraft landed here from Mumbai on Saturday evening.

The passengers of IC-168 had some anxious moments has the doors of the aircraft were opened 45 minutes after the plane had come to a halt in its allotted slot at about 7-15 p.m.

Wrong alighting point

The doors of the aircraft opened only at 8 p.m. but the passengers realised that there was no end to their woes as the bus that was supposed to have taken them to the domestic arrivals area had instead reached the international arrivals section of Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA).

All the passengers were told by the airport staff to return to their bus which would take them to the domestic arrivals area as this was not their alighting point.

When contacted, Delhi International Airport Limited officials said they were trying to find out what has happened.

Airline officials contended that no such incident had taken place.

Mr. Ahamed is understood to have decided to take up the matter with Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel. - PTI
