Almost an hour after informing about “temporary runway unavailability”, Indigo airline said on Wednesday, “The runway is now fully available again and flight operations to/from #Goa (GOX/MOPA) are back to normal.” 

Two hours ago, the airlines had issued a travel advisory for passengers travelling from and to Goa, saying that flights to and from Goa were getting impacted due to temporary runway unavailability.

“Due to temporary runway unavailability, flights to and from Goa (GOX/ MOPA) are getting impacted,” said IndiGo in a post on X.

The airline had also advised passengers to stay updated on their flight status and reach out to the airline's crew or on-ground team for immediate assistance. 

The closure of the runway at Goa's newly developed airport necessitated the cancellation or rescheduling of several flights, causing inconvenience to travellers.

Passengers travelling to or from Goa are advised to check their flight status regularly through the provided link or the airline's official channels.

Earlier in the day, the airline said that flights were impacted due to thundershowers in and around Shillong, and asked passengers too explore alternate options or claim a full refund.

Around 12 pm, the airlines informed, "#6ETravelAdvisory: Thundershowers ahead for #Bengaluru, #Chennai and #Kolkata."
