Mahindra & Mahindra Managing Director Pawan Goenka too was among the passengers impacted by delays as his Air India flight was late.
“Flight to Delhi from Mumbai delayed by 2 hours as the crew could not reach the airport in time due to rain,” Goenka said in a tweet.
In a statement, IndiGo said, “Due to the unprecedented non-stop rains in Mumbai, there are close to 30 flights on ground. As a result of flooding and water logging on roads and the subsequent traffic jams, many of our ground support staff, crew and captains have not been able to reach the airport on time.”
“As a result, the departure flights have also been held up. We are doing everything possible to restore normalcy.”
