30 international passengers mistakenly dropped off at domestic arrivals at Bengaluru airport
As many as 30 international passengers from Colombo were dropped off at the domestic arrivals bus gate and entered the domestic baggage claim area at the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru. The passengers arrived on a Sri Lankan Airlines flight UL 173, reports said.
The information was shared by a spokesperson from the Bengaluru International Airport Limited who said a human error had occured. The spokesperson also informed that the passengers were immediately shifted to the international arrivals area for immigration after the terminal operations team was alerted by the authorities.
This kind of human error did not take place for the first time. Earlier this year, Go First neglected to board around 50 passengers who waited on a shuttle bus on the tarmac and the flight took off without them in the Bengaluru-Delhi service.

Reports said the domestic airline made arrangements for another flight for the left-back passengers after realising the error.
The airline incidents do not seem to come to an end. In the last few months, several shocking incidents occurred in the airlines including Air India. Who can forget the infamous Shankar Mishra who sparked controversy after he peed on a fellow woman passenger in business class on an Air India flight from New York to New Delhi?
In January, Scoot Airlines flying from Amritsar to Singapore took off early leaving behind 17 passengers at the Amritsar Airport.
