Indore: Gusty Winds Prevent Plane From Landing, Hyderabad Flight Diverted To Bhopal |

Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Bad weather conditions disrupted flights at Devi Ahilyabai Holkar International Airport on Sunday evening, particularly affecting an IndiGo flight arriving from Hyderabad. Flight 6E-6915, scheduled to land in Indore at 3:35 pm, encountered strong winds upon arrival, making it unsafe to land.

The aircraft, with 191 passengers on board, circled Indore airspace for about 30 minutes before being diverted to Bhopal at 4:05 pm due to persistent high wind speed. Airport authorities confirmed the weather impact, noting that the sudden change in conditions necessitated the diversion.

‘Due to high wind speed, it was not safe for the plane to land in Indore, hence it was diverted to Bhopal,’ an airport official stated. After landing safely in Bhopal, the flight remained there until the weather improved. It took off from Bhopal and returned to Indore, landing at 6:00 pm. The flight then continued its journey to Mumbai, departing Indore at 6:30 pm with passengers.
