Nine pvt airlines flights cancelled in Bangalore

Our Bureau

Bangalore , Sept. 29

PRIVATE airlines cancelled nine flights in Bangalore and clubbed three, most of them to Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. Jet Airways cancelled two flights to Kolkata and one to Chennai. Kingfisher Airlines had announced yesterday that it had cancelled two morning flights to Mumbai and Chennai. Air Sahara cancelled two flights and Indian Airlines rescheduled morning flights to evening.

An Airports Authority official said there were no diversions or major disruption in traffic. He said, "The day went off absolutely fine, almost as usual. Till 4.30 p.m., there were 48 arrivals and 51 departures - which is 4-5 flights less than normal till that time. But that is because of cancellations, clubbing of flights by the airlines and for low passenger loads; and not for want of any facilities and services at the airport."

Of the 210 AAI staff in Bangalore, some 60 were on strike. Passengers were perceptibly low, he said. In an entire normal day, the HAL Airport handles 90 landings and take-offs.

The Air Deccan spokesperson, Ms Vijaya Menon, said except for 14 cancellations on the eastern sector, it was a near normal day for other flights across the country. The average passenger load was about 67 per cent of the normal.
