The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) also asked the airlines not to levy any cancellation fee from passengers who want to cancel their travel plans.
“Due to the situation in the state, we have directed all airlines not to deduct cancellation charges from travellers who do not wish to fly. We have also asked them to allow passengers to reschedule flights without any extra charge,” DGCA chief Prabhat Kumar told PTI here.
Meanwhile, all flight operations to Jammu and Srinagar were normal today, though a few were delayed by 30 minutes to an hour, airport sources said here, adding that airports in these two cities have not been affected by the floods.
