IndiGo flight carrying Nitin Gadkari, 158 others fails to take off from Nagpur due to snag


A New Delhi-bound IndiGo flight carrying Union minister Nitin Gadkari and 158 other passengers failed to take off from Nagpur airport in Maharashtra on Tuesday morning due to a “technical fault”, an official said. Another attempt made sometime later by the flight’s pilot to take off also failed, he said.

The IndiGo flight 6E-636 was supposed to take off from Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport here at 7.50 am and reach Delhi at 9.35 am. “It did not take off due to a technical fault,” the airport’s senior director Vijay Mulekar said.

“Subsequently, around 10.30 am, the flight made a second attempt to take off but was pushed back again due to the technical snag. There were 159 passengers onboard,” he added. Read More
