Jat stir: Major domestic operators like AI, Jet Airways and others to fly additional flights

New Delhi: With public transport system in Haryana severely hit by the Jat stir for quota, the Civil Aviation Ministry has asked airlines to operate additional flights from here to Chandigarh, Amritsar and Jaipur to enable stranded people reach their destinations.

Air India also said that it is offering special nominal fares for its additional flights.

"Air India has again spread its wings to fly out passengers stranded due to the sensitive situation along all surface transport routes in the adjoining areas arising out of the Jat agitation," the airlines said in a release.

"AI is operating an additional flight from Delhi at 1730 hours today on the Delhi-Chandigarh-Amritsar-Delhi sector to fly stranded people," it said.
