Air India loses 500 cr due to the 45 days old pilots strike
NEW DELHI: Air India has suffered a loss of around Rs 500 crore due to the 45-day-old pilots’ strike, forcing the airline management to extend its curtailed international flight plan till July 31.
Air India has lost around Rs 500 crore in terms of revenue in the ongoing strike, as the airline has been incurring losses to the tune of about Rs 10 crore per day, sources told PTI today, a day after Air India CMD Rohit Nandan said the national carrier was also “making some substantial savings”.
While most flights affected are those to Europe and North America where a curtailed operation was on, the only destinations not covered under this schedule are Hong Kong, Osaka, Seoul and Toronto.
All flights to UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait, Singapore, Thailand and SAARC countries were being operated as per normal schedule.
