JAMMU: In order to give succour to the stranded passengers in Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian Air Force administration at Jammu is keeping the Satwari Airport open for civil air traffic in the night.

The ongoing agitation in Haryana has resulted in cancellation of several trains between Jammu, Udhampur, Delhi and other towns.

Even the road movement to Delhi and other towns is hampered considerably, which has resulted in severe hardship and constraints to numerous citizens.

This measure will ensure availability of airport for civil operators round the clock.

The administration of Airport Authority of India (AAI) and all other civil aviation agencies like DGCA and airline operating companies have been intimated by Indian Air Force through a notice to airmen regarding the extended period of availability of Airport. 

The IAF officials at the Satwari Airport have clarified that this relief measure will be in vogue till complete normalcy returns.
