The Qatar Airways flight (QTR669) was scheduled to take off to Doha at 03.25 today was cancelled due to a technical glitch. The aircraft from Doha was declared AOG (Aircraft On Ground) due to a technical glitch, soon after landing at the BIA this morning.

The aircraft was moved to a parking bay where its captain announced that it was AOG and the flight was put on a departure schedule. However, the Duty Manager said that the passengers were provided alternate flights to Doha. Ultimately Qatar Airways (QTR669) departed at 16.15 after rescheduling of the time. (Chaturanga Pradeep)
