Tourism industry leaders in Agra Tuesday reacted sharply to Air India’s abrupt announcement to suspend its Agra-Mumbai flight from Nov 15 to 28 due to unavailability of aircraft.
“Just when the newly-introduced Mumbai-Agra flight had become popular and was reporting full booking, they have suspended it. This has disturbed travel plans of tourists and businessmen,” said Tourism Welfare Chamber president Prahlad Agarwal.
“We have written to the ministry and the Air India chairman, protesting against the order. Those who have purchased tickets have been left in the lurch,” Agarwal added.
The Tourism Guild of Agra, in a statement, said: “It would send a wrong message.”
