JAIPUR: The army has been allowed access to Jaipur civil airport to conduct its services in view of the road and rail blockades in neighbouring Haryana by Jat agitators demanding quota in government jobs.            

Jaipur Aiport (AAI) Director B K Tailang told PTI here that army was allowed to make use of the Jaipur Airport located in Sanganer for its chopper or aircraft services to desired locations and destinations. Since Jaipur is close to Delhi and Haryana, the Jaipur Civil Airport has allowed the army to use it on the direction of the Centre, he said.   

He refused to disclose the number of sorties undertaken by the army citing confidentiality. Private airlines were also encouraged to introduce extra flights to ease passenger load, Tailang said.
