In a serious violation of norms, GoAir’s Chennai to Port Blair flight on December 15 and 16 flew without the requisite permissions in place to operate the flights. The budget carrier’s flight was scheduled as a cargo flight but, violating rules, the airline booked passengers and operated both of them as commercial flights leading to its return.
Airports Authority of India (AAI) sources said the flight had reached Port Blair when it was denied permission to land.
