Ruckus was witnessed at the Chandigarh international airport as 30 passengers, who were to board a flight to Sharjah, were not allowed to do so by immigration check officials today as they did not fulfil the Covid guidelines.
The airport authorities had to call the police after the passengers raised a hue and cry over being stopped from boarding the Sharjah flight.
DSP Amroz Singh said the police intervention prevented the law and order situation from going out of hand at the airport. He said the passengers were not fulfilling the Covid guidelines issued by the UAE due to which they were not allowed to board the flight.
The flight was operated according to the new Covid guidelines issued by the UAE. Rapid antigen tests for all passengers were conducted at the airport. However, some passengers did not fulfil the norms and were not allowed to board the flight.
After nearly two months, international flight operations resumed at the airport today with the departure of the Sharjah flight.
Ajay Bhardwaj, CEO, Chandigarh International Airport Limited, said Air India Express AXB188/187, carrying 29 passengers, arrived at 2.55 pm. He said 131 passengers boarded the flight for Sharjah, which departed from Chandigarh at 6 pm. He said the flight to Sharjah would operate every Thursday and Sunday.
