Angry scenes met the eye at the Chandigarh International Airport on Sunday, as Jet Airways airline’s decision to cancel flights to several destinations—including Delhi, Pune, and Mumbai—left several passengers agitated.    

Sources at the airlines claimed that the flights were cancelled because of "technical issues" and that the passengers were informed of the changes in advance.

Unhappy passengers however did not buy their reasons. A passenger, Sanjiv Kumar, who was to board a flight to Mumbai, said he got no such intimation from the airlines.

“I had been booked on an international flight from Mumbai and now I don’t know what to do. I came to know that my flight was cancelled only after I came to the airport,” he said.

Another passenger who only identified herself as Anshika was to board a flight to Mumbai.

“I was shocked when I found that the flight has been cancelled. I got no message from the airlines,” said Anshika.

Several passengers were seen clustered around the Jet Airways counter at the airport demanding answers.    

“Most of us have our connecting flights from Delhi or Mumbai. Now we’ll miss those,” a passenger said.

This correspondent has asked the airline for its response. The story will be updated as soon as we get it.
