Services between 8.30 a.m. and 2 p.m. to be affected

HYDEREABAD: Flight services to and from Hyderabad are likely to be affected between 8.30 a.m. and 2 p.m. in view of the arrival of the United States President George W. Bush to the twin cities on Friday.

Sources in the airport say that there may not be any problem for the arrival or departure of morning flights. But once the Air Force One lands, flight services would certainly be affected.

Though many airline operators maintained that rescheduling could be announced only after the air traffic control is informed of the parking of the Air Force One in one of the bays, Jet Airways has already announced rescheduling of some flights in and out of Hyderabad.
