Denied in Chandigarh, Air India sourcing fuel from nearby airports

Mohali: Air India has been forced to make stopgap arrangements following denial of fuel to the national flag carrier by the oil marketing companies (OMCs) at the Chandigarh International Airport over non-payment issues, said an official at the airport. Air India is now arranging aviation fuel from alternate sources.
The state-owned OMCs had on August 22 evening stopped fuel supply to the national carrier at six airports, including the Chandigarh International Airport at Mohali following non-payment of dues.
Sources in the oil marketing firms led by IndianOil said that they have stopped jet fuel supply at Mohali, Ranchi, Patna, Vizag, Pune and Cochin airports.
"Fuel supply has been stopped due to non-payment of dues. The outstanding amount runs into crores which is yet to be paid. However, we are in touch with the airline and are hopeful of an early resolution of the issue," a senior IndianOil official told TOI.
Air India operates four flights from Chandigarh to Delhi, Leh and Kullu.
