HYDERABAD: Even as struggling Kingfisher Airlines cancelled 20 more flights nationwide, Hyderabad remained insulated from any kind of disruptions on Monday. This after around 80 flights were earlier cancelled on Sunday across the country, which affected Hyderabad, among other five metro cities.
Officials with the Kingfisher Airlines and the Shamshabad Airport, confirmed the same. “Operations in Hyderabad went as per schedule. No flight of the airline, either departing or arriving at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport was disrupted on Monday, though it’s true Sunday saw quite a few flights getting cancelled,” said Anil Kumar, PR of the Shamshabad Airport.
Neither the PR firm of Kingfisher nor any other ground staff of the airport though, could throw light on the continued possibility of more flight cancellations as the week progresses. A statement released by the Kingfisher PR team claimed that only around 15% of all national flights have been cancelled, and sought to assure the passengers that the airlines had adequate cabin and flight crew to operate the current schedule of flights on offer.
The Kingfisher website showed no change in schedule as of Monday night and Tuesday morning flights to New Delhi and Bangalore from Hyderabad.
