Staff Correspondent

MUMBAI: Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel said air traffic across the country was by and large normal on Thursday in spite of the strike call given by employees of the Airports Authority of India (AAI) against the proposed modernisation of the Mumbai and Delhi airports.

"AAI-run airports including Kolkata have been functioning normally. The departures and arrivals have been absolutely normal". Some flights were curtailed by airlines because they apprehended problems, he told the media here.

Passengers however postponed travel and airlines combined flights.
