Chennai: An Emirates flight from Dubai, carrying 262 passengers, encountered a series of delays and an unsettling security incident upon arrival in Chennai. Initially scheduled to land at midnight, the flight was rerouted to Bengaluru due to adverse weather conditions. However, an hour later, the flight landed in Chennai and was once again delayed due to a bomb threat call that was received at around 10am.
The troubles for passengers continued as the departure of Emirates flight EK542 from Chennai to Dubai, originally set for 4am on Tuesday, was delayed by five hours. Subsequently rescheduled to take off at 10:30am, the flight faced another setback when a bomb threat was reported around 10am.
After hours of waiting and heightened security measures, the Emirates flight is now scheduled to depart from Chennai to Dubai at 3pm, accommodating 286 passengers. The prolonged delays have created significant challenges at the airport, with reports of passengers enduring over 13 hours of waiting, leading to shortages of food and water.
The incident highlights the disruptions and logistical strains faced by passengers and airport authorities alike during unforeseen circumstances in air travel operations.
