Pvt airline denied permission by IAF to operate flight

Jodhpur: The Indian Air Force today denied permission to a private airline to operate its flight from here to Jaisalmer citing security reasons.
Following this the airline threatened to initiating legal action against the IAF for “disrupting” the flight and “causing monetary loss” to it.
“A private airline, which had sought permission to operate a non-scheduled flight to Jaisalmer, could not be permitted due to failure on its part to fulfill requisite conditions pertaining to safety of the aircraft and passengers as per the guidelines and non-coordination of ground logistics prior to flight operation,” Defence spokesperson Lt Col Manish Ojha said tonight.
He said IAF accords highest priority to the safety and security of passengers travelling on such airlines.
Operations of the Jaisalmer airport is under the control of IAF.
