Bhubaneswar: Passengers onboard an Alliance Air flight faced considerable inconvenience after the flight could not land at the Jharsuguda airport due to inclement weather.
The flight reportedly took off from the Biju Patnaik International Airport (BPIA) here on Sunday and supposed to land at the VSS airport, Jhuarsuguda. However, bad weather compelled the pilot to divert the flight to the originating airport.
The flight later safely landed at the Bhubaneswar airport.
Notably, the civil aviation ministry had decided to install a state-of-the-art landing system at the Jharsuguda airport to make it an all-weather airport. Recently, the Doppler Very High-Frequency Omni Range (DVOR) became functional at the Airport.
