Air Asia stops Karnataka Governor Thawarchand Gehlot from boarding flight, Raj Bhavan says he was not late | Bangalore News


The office of the Governor of Karnataka Thawarchand Gehlot has written to the Airport Authority of India, the Kempegowda International Airport Limited and Air Asia regarding an alleged violation of protocol in not allowing him to board a flight to Hyderabad Thursday despite reaching the airport 15 minutes before take-off.

Sources said the incident caused embarrassment to the Governor. Gehlot was scheduled to catch the 2.05 pm AirAsia flight I5-972 from Bengaluru to Hyderabad. According to sources, the Governor reached the airport’s VIP lounge at 1.50 pm and spent a small amount of time in the restroom before being escorted to the aircraft.

The Governor, however, was not allowed to board the aircraft by the airline staff, citing the closure of the flight door, sources familiar with the incident said.

“The Governor was not late and there was still five minutes for the take-off. The ATC and the flight attendants could have permitted the Governor to enter the flight. It is a violation of protocol. A letter has been written seeking legal action. This is the first time a Governor has not been allowed to board a flight after being on time,” sources said.

The Governor, who was travelling to Raichur via Hyderabad, was later put on the next available flight to Hyderabad around 90 minutes after he missed the 2.05 pm flight.
