New Delhi: Several passengers protest as a Singapore-bound flight departed before the scheduled departure time leaving 35 passengers stranded at the Amritsar airport. 

Taking note of the lapse by Singapore's low-cost Scoot Airline, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has ordered an investigation into the incident. 

The Scoot Airlines’ Amritsar-Singapore flight was originally scheduled to depart at 7.55 pm on Wednesday from the Amritsar airport but it took off nearly 4 hours ahead of its departure time. 

Following protests from the passengers, the Airport authorities contacted the airlines and the airlines management said they had to reschedule the Amritsar-Singapore flight and the same was communicated to the passengers via email. They also said 263 passengers boarded the flight well in time.
