Jet Airways flight 9w1229 from Amsterdam to Delhi and then onwards to Mumbai had departed from Amsterdam at 1654 hours local time on Thursday after the airline combined its Mumbai flight with it.
The airline had on Thursday announced to fly three flights, one each to Mumbai, Delhi and Toronto from Amsterdam to fly its passengers, who were stuck in Brussels due to the deadly terror attack on the airport and metro station in the Belgian capital on Tuesday.
However, the airline cancelled Mumbai flight due to a snag in the aircraft and combined it with Delhi flight.
