Some Aurangabad-Mumbai flights scrapped

AURANGABAD: The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has cancelled all the evening flights between Aurangabad and Mumbai on Monday and Thursday because of the ongoing repair work at the Mumbai airport.

The evening flights on the two days will not operate between the two cities from October 31 till November 28, reports The Times of India.

This will have a direct impact on the two flights operated by Air India and Jet Airways.

When contacted, a Jet Airways representative confirmed that the airline will not operate on the two days and said the frequent fliers have already been informed about the development to avoid any inconvenience.

AAI officials said the decision was taken a few months ago and was communicated to all airports across the country to ensure alternate arrangements.

Air ticket operators have expressed anguish over the decision citing that the flights getting cancelled during Diwali will take a toll on their businesses.

A senior officer with the airport said since Mumbai airport is a preferred destination for emergency landings for both national and international flights, the decision was made public a few months ago itself.
