New Delhi: The parents of Indian Air Force (IAF) Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman were given a standing ovation when they de-boarded an IndiGo Chennai-New Delhi flight in New Delhi on Friday.

In videos uploaded on social media, the parents are seen alighting from the aircraft as co-passengers clapped and cheered them.

According to people in the knowledge of the incident, although the parents wished to travel without any fanfare, fellow passengers discovered their identity and voluntarily gave them the first right of de-boarding.
