Abu Dhabi-Thiruvananthapuram Air India Express flight IX583 delayed indefinitely due to technical problems in Dubai. The flight was originally scheduled to depart at 9.10 on Thursday. It was delayed 23 hours and finally left at 7.45 yesterday.

Some passengers, including pregnant women arrived at the airport on Thursday evening from different emirates. They waited all day. Passengers were unhappy that they had to be seated in airport seats. However, airline representatives stated they could offer accommodation. Many people slept on the ground.

Varun, a Thiruvalla passenger, claimed that he was told the flight would be delayed after completing his emigration paperwork. He stated that he would depart at 11.45pm, but passengers began to make a fuss when it was too late. The visa cancellers and visitor visa holders were then transferred separately. Although he was allowed to be accommodated at a facility, he was not allowed to stay there. He complained that he was only given snacks.
