'Baggage Error' Forces Bengaluru-Bound IndiGo Flight To Return To Singapore
IndiGo Airlines acknowledged the mistake calling it a "Baggage Error" and said that the passengers were informed of the delay and were served refreshments.
An IndiGo flight en route to Bengaluru returned to Singapore after take-off on Tuesday morning as the airline had forgotten to offload the baggage of passengers of an earlier flight.
"We acknowledge the baggage error on the part of our service partner at Singapore airport with respect to flight 6E 1006 operating from Singapore to Bengaluru, due to which the flight returned to its origin. The passengers were kept informed of the delay and served refreshments," the airline said in a statement. Some social media users complained about the incident.
Tagging IndiGo, a user on X said, "Congratulations on achieving the impossible... Singapore Bengaluru flight at 5:40 am made to turn back coz you guys forgot to offload luggage from incoming flight". Another X user said there was mismanagement at Singapore airport.
