Oil companies resume fuel supply to Air India at 6 airports

New Delhi/Mumbai: State-owned oil marketing companies on Saturday resumed fuel supplies to the loss-making Air India at six airports, weeks after it was suspended for mounting dues.

The fuel supply was restored following government-mediated talks earlier this week between the parties under which the airline has ''committed" to pay Rs 100 crore per month to clear the outstanding dues of Rs 4,300 crore, official sources said.

"Supplies to Air India resumed from Saturday evening," an OMC spokesperson said without divulging details.

The spokesperson, however, said Air India has agreed to payment terms for future supplies.

Last month, IndianOil along with Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum had stopped supplies to the state-run carrier in Pune, Vizag, Cochin, Patna, Ranchi and Mohali citing mounting dues.

Meanwhile, an Air India official said the fuel supplies were restored after it agreed to pay the oil firms Rs 100 crore per month to clear the dues.
