Oil companies threaten to extend fuel ban on Air India to two more cities; flight operations to get impacted

New Delhi: Passengers booked on Air India may not be able to complete their flights with oil companies threatening to expand their fuel supply ban on the national carrier to two more airports.
Sources said that the oil companies have written to the airline saying that they will expand their fuel supply ban to Raipur and Hyderabad airports too from September 5.
The oil companies are not supplying fuel to Air India at six airports that are Patna, Ranchi, Pune, Mohali, Vizag and Kochi.
“We are going to cancel our flights out of Vizag because it is becoming unsustainable for us to continue with our flights with the ban,” said a senior Air India official, who did not want to be identified.
He added that Air India is on cash and carry with oil companies and is paying RS 18 crore to them everyday.
