MUMBAI: After Air India Express' Doha-bound flight from Mumbai got delayed by almost 18 hours, now the Doha-Mumbai flight of the same airlines also grounded due to a technical snag.           

The flight, IX 244, with 110 passengers on board, was scheduled to take off from Doha 5.55 pm (Doha time), but got delayed due to technical glitch, an Air India spokesperson said here tonight.       

However, the spokesperson did not say as to when the stranded passengers would be flown to the destination.  

Earlier, the Doha-bound Air India Express flight with 59 passengers on board, which was scheduled to take off yesterday at 3.55 pm, departed to its destination from the city's international airport at 10.44 am.            

The delay of almost 18 hours had been caused due to the non-availability of flight crew, the airlines said.
