Johannesburg – The Gupta family made headlines when a plane carrying nearly 200 wedding guests landed at the Waterkloof Air Force Base.

But while government scrambles for answers over who allowed this apparent unscheduled landing, the newlyweds have left for their honeymoon.

After a lavish wedding at Sun City, Vega Gupta and her husband Aakash Jahajgarhia tried to leave unnoticed from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport.

ENCA reported that the newlyweds and more than a hundred of the Gupta family's wedding guests have departed from the airport.

The couple reportedly tried to use handlers to check for for their flight, but the handlers panicked and ran towards the couple at the security gates.

The wedding guests received no special treatment when boarding their flight back home.

Jet Airways has also been fined R80 000, by the Civil Aviation Authority for flying in South African airspace without a Foreign Operator Permit and not obtaining permission to land at the military base.
