Kochi, Jan 20: A Delhi-bound IndiGo flight from Cochin international airport was delayed by almost an hour on Monday after the security agencies raised 'doubts' over some objects found in the checked-in baggage of a passenger, airport sources said.
The flight 6E 298 scheduled to depart for Mumbai at 8 a.m left at 8.56 a.m, the sources added.
