Number Of Passengers On City-Delhi Flight Reduced


As the height of many trees on the southern side of the Sahnewal airport has crossed 100 feet, and due to high temperature, airport authorities have decided to decrease the number of passengers in flights from Ludhiana to Delhi. The authorities have asked the district administration about the issue for the safety of passengers.

Confirming a decrease of passengers on the Ludhiana-Delhi flight, Sahnewal airport terminal manager Mahesh Babbar said the number of passengers in the flight was decreased to 44 in the 77-seater Air India flight due to technical issues, but the number of passengers in the Delhi-Ludhiana flight remained 70.

Airport officials said even as the capacity of the flight remained 70, the number of passengers that can travel in it has been decreased due to several reasons. They added that there are around 60 trees (mainly eucalyptus) on the southern side (towards Jugiana) that have crossed a height of 100 feet, which makes it risky for pilots at the time of take-off. Besides, due to high temperature (which effects pressure at the time of take-off) in summer, the load of flights is decreased due to certain technical issues. Read More…
