Air India: 10 international routes cancelled

National carrier Air India seems to be in major trouble. As many as 10 out of 34 international routes have been cancelled due to the ongoing strike by the pilots.

According to reports, the frequency of flights on eight routes has been reduced from seven to two per week.

The routes that have been cancelled include Mumbai-Newark, Delhi-Toronto, Mumbai-London, Delhi-Hong Kong-Seoul and Delhi-Hong Kong-Osaka.

Besides, the national carrier has reduced frequencies of flights on routes such as Mumbai-Riyadh, Delhi-Tokyo, Delhi-Shanghai and Delhi-Riyadh.

The contingency plan by Air India came hours after a privilege motion was moved against Union Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh by the JDU, the BJP and the CPM for speaking outside the House while Parliament is in session.
