Passengers irked as flight cancelled  
Our Correspondent  

Rajasansi (Amritsar), September 6
The International airport witnessed rowdy scenes after the announcement of the cancellation of Air Slovakia flight.  

Agitated passengers and escorting relatives/friends manhandled Flight Manager Amarjit soon after the announcement was made.

About 300 ticket holders and those accompanying them for a flight to Bergamo, Italy, had started arriving at about 9 am and waited for the take-off scheduled for 2 pm.  

The situation turned tense when angry passengers and others waving tickets mobbed a flight official and started raising slogan against him even as the foreign flight crew of the airlines sat huddled in bus in the parking area.

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) rescued the official. However, the passengers broke the cordon and ran after him. The official managed to go inside the International Arrival Lounge building with the help of the CISF and a few persons present in the scene.  

For nearly three hours the passengers did not budge and continued to raise slogans, demanding refund. The situation eased only after the airlines issued certificates to each passenger citing that “MP Flywell services, Italy, had defrauded the airlines by not paying operating charges and hence the flight has been cancelled.”
