An IndiGo flight from Nagpur to Delhi failed to take off on Tuesday after a “serious error” was detected in the aircraft.

IndiGo flight 6E 636 from Nagpur to Delhi returned to the taxiway from the runway after the pilot detected a serious error and decided to abort the take-off.

Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari was also on board the flight. All the passengers were immediately deboarded.

Gadkari is the Lok Sabha MP from Nagpur.

Earlier in April, a Mumbai-bound IndiGo flight had to perform a mid-air “turn back” manoeuvre due to excessive vibration from one of the engines of the aircraft.

The A320 NEO aircraft operated by IndiGo has faced a series of problems earlier with engine vibration being one of them. At least 15 cases of mid-air engine problems have been reported in the A320 NEOs operated by IndiGo and GoAir since January.
