Tribune News ServiceBathinda, November 15The Air Alliance, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Air India, has grounded Bathinda-Jammu flight till March 31 due to operational issues and the ongoing renovation of Jammu Airport. Earlier, Bathinda-Jammu flight was operating five days a week from the Bathinda airport at Virk Kalan. Initially when the flight started, it did not get good response and ran at low occupancy, but with time, the response on Bathinda-Delhi route improved and more people started opting for flight while traveling to Delhi from here. Prior to its inauguration in December 2016, the Bathinda airport also remained a non-starter for four years as no airline showed interest in operating flights from a city which is neither an industrial nor a business hub. The airport building is under the control of the AAI while the runway, air traffic and emergency services are in the domain of the Air Force.
