New Zealand Prime Minister John Key’s aircraft developed a snag en route to India on Monday, resulting in the cancellation of his programmes in Mumbai during the first leg of his visit to the country.

Key, who was to land in Mumbai on Monday at 6:30pm, will now be arriving in Delhi on Tuesday evening.

“There was a technical snag in the flight. So Prime Minister Key rescheduled his programme,” sources familiar with the development told HT.

Key had a packed schedule in Mumbai. He was to visit the Bombay Stock Exchange followed by witnessing the signing of agreements between the Maharashtra government and New Zealand.

On Wednesday, Kay will meet with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, and will leave for Jakarta the next day.
