“Eight departures from Mumbai and an equal number of flights from other places to the city have been cancelled due to non-availability of pilots in the wake of the strike by a section of its pilots,” a Mumbai International Airport (MIAL) official said.
Kingfisher flights from Delhi to Dharamshala, Udaipur and Dehra Dun were also cancelled.
A Kingfisher Airlines spokesperson did not respond to repeated calls.
In the second such action within a month, the pilots went on strike demanding release of salaries, affecting flight operations.
The stir comes after a meeting here between a group of pilots and Kingfisher Airlines chief executive Sanjay Aggarwal over the salary issue ended without any results, airline sources said.
“About 15 pilots had gone to meet the CEO to enquire about the March salary since the pilots were promised by the management that every one would be paid by August 17. They were told that the chairman (Vijay Mallya) has said they will be paid by Tuesday,” the pilots said.
