Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who came to India for the G20 summit, got stuck on Sunday (September 10) after his plane suffered a technical glitch. His replacement plane, which was coming from Canada, was diverted to London, further delaying his return journey home. Now speaking to news agency ANI, Canada PMO Press Secretary Mohammad Hussain said that the technical fault in the Canadian Prime Minister’s plane has been rectified. The aircraft has been given clearance to take off. The Canadian delegation is expected to depart this afternoon.
Trudeau had reached Delhi on September 8 with his son Xavier for the G20 summit. He was to fly on 10 September. However, his Airbus plane developed a fault, forcing him to extend his stay in Delhi. According to a Toronto Sun report on Monday, the Canadian Armed Forces had sent its CC-150 Polaris aircraft to pick up Trudeau after the plane by which Trudeau had come to Delhi was grounded due to technical problems.
Earlier problems with Canadian Air Force aircraft
Notably, the CC-150 Polaris, which was headed to India before being diverted to London, is 36 years old and has caused problems in the past. In October 2016, the plane carrying Trudeau returned to Ottawa after flying to Belgium for an official visit.
