It`s business as usual, claims Sahara

New Delhi: Three days after the deal to sell the airline to rival Jet Airways fell through, business is slowly getting back to normal at Air Sahara.
According to Air Sahara insiders, the airline’s operations were gradually rolling back on course, with the engineering requirement of the airline having been fixed. Sources said Air Sahara had started negotiations with other airlines for an engineering-level collaboration.
Airport sources said today most of Air Sahara’s flights took off without major delays.
Minor delays were minimal at about 5 to 7 per cent of 125 flights a day. Compared with this, on Friday, about 10 per cent of the airline’s flights faced major delays and a large number of minor ones.
Air Sahara sources said the airline had not seen any fall in booking since the deal fell through. The airline’s load factor — about 63 per cent in April — had improved to about 70 per cent in the last few weeks.
