More flights in Indian skies

New Delhi:With the country already deep into peak winter travel season, India has decided to throw open its skies for a limited period of 75 days, allowing foreign carriers to increase flight frequencies and operate larger aircraft to clear the rush of overseas travellers.
The Open Sky policy will be in place this year between November 15 and January 31. "While in the first month, airlines will be allowed to put a bigger aircraft on their existing frequencies, from December 15 onwards, they are free to operate as many frequencies as they want to the clear the rush," a ministry source said.
The step has been taken to ensure that passengers were not offloaded from the aircraft due to heavy winter holiday rush. This limited-period Open Sky was being implemented every year for the past nearly five years now.
