NEW DELHI, July 14 (UPI Asia) – Passengers of an Indian airline were left stranded across the country as the strike-hit airline cancelled 40 flights.
The flights of Kingfisher Airlines were cancelled due to a strike by pilots over non-payment of salaries and other dues over the past five months.
The airline cancelled 12 flights originating from the country's capital Delhi. Six flights were cancelled in the city of Mumbai and three in Bangalore. Other flights from cities across India were also cancelled.
This is the third time in the last 12 days that the airline's pilots have gone on a strike.
The cash-strapped airline is going through a crisis because of non-payment of fuel dues, taxes and employee salaries.
The airline's international operations were suspend in March after the International Air Transport Association suspended the carrier from its clearing house on account of non-payment of dues.
