Air India Delhi flight cancelled

Owing to a technical glitch, an Air India flight (AI 426) operating in the Kozhikode- Kannur- Delhi sector was grounded at the Calicut International Airport on Wednesday.

However, the abrupt cancellation caused huge inconvenience to air passengers both in Kozhikode and Kannur. The flight was to depart at 2:15 p.m. from the Calicut airport. About 70% of the passengers are from Kozhikode in the sector. It was to reach Kannur at 2.45 p.m., depart at 3.30 p.m. and arrive in Delhi at 6.45 p.m.

An Air India official said that an alternative flight would be provided to the passengers at 9.30 a.m. on Thursday. All the passengers have been provided accommodation at hotels. The national carrier began the service in the sector last month. It is available on all days barring Mondays and Thursdays.
