Passengers of the “unfortunate” G9-252 flight of Air Arabia finally jetted off from Astana and Almaty to Sharjah. The flight was initially scheduled to leave the airport in Astana at 04:55 a.m. on January 6 but was delayed for two days.
On January 8 the passengers of the delayed flight headed to Sharjah via G9-252 and G9-254 flights from Astana and Almaty at 05:11 a.m. and 05:19 a.m., respectively.
Air Arabia’s G9-252 flight bound to Sharjah was delayed due to a technical reason and postponed until 20:10 p.m. However, the aircraft failed to get off the ground that evening again – this time due to a problem with its engine. After that the passengers were split into two groups – the first one was transported to Almaty via a Kazakh airline and then jetted off to Sharjah. The second group traveled to Sharjah from Astana. Both aircraft took off from Astana and Almaty earlier last morning. (Kazinform/Business World Magazine)
