The bees were detected before passengers boarded the flights. "A team searched the area and sprayed insecticide in the surrounding places," an airport official said.

A video of the incident has gone viral on social media. The caption read, "Looks like honey pancakes inside."

A similar incident had occurred in 2019 when an Air India flight from Kolkata to Agartala was delayed by two and half hours after a swarm of bees was noticed in front of the cockpit window when the aircraft was taxing towards the runway.
