As the domestic flights in India resumed operations from different airports across the country today, people have been raising concerns as hundreds of flights were cancelled in the last minute.

Chaos in Airports: Hundreds of Flights Cancelled Across India!

"We were going to Delhi. We were told when we arrived here that the flight has been cancelled. One of the customer care employees told us that there is a flight that runs tonight and that may be, we have been rescheduled. But nothing is confirmed yet," a woman, sitting on her suitcase at Mumbai airport told NDTV. Her flight was scheduled for 11 am, however since web check-ins are only allowed, she was unable to find out if she could board the next flight to Delhi.

Maharashtra which has the highest number of coronavirus cases in India, announced in the last minute that the state will only accept 25 take-offs and 25 landings. The state’s CM has also asked for more time before they can prepare for more flights.

Mumbai airport also witnessed long security check lines, as the personnel took longer than usual for thermal screening and other required procedures.

Delhi has reportedly cancelled 82 flights today, which has caused utter chaos in the airport. The airport officials have made a statement saying that the cancellations are on account of several states telling the centre that they will not operate flights.

Similarly, passengers at the Chennai airport have also faced difficulties. "From March 15, we were stuck here in Tamil Nadu due to the lockdown. We booked three tickets for Mumbai last night but while reaching here, our flight tickets were cancelled and there is no one to answer us at the help desk. We don't know what to do now," Viswanathan, a passenger, was quoted saying by ANI.

North-East is also facing a major disruption as the airports stand damaged by the violent Amphan Cyclone.

Collectively, passengers who had booked the tickets to fly back to their own states have been facing difficulties in succeeding today.
