In the face of a strike by a section of employees of the Air India’s ground handling subsidiary AIATSL, several flights from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) were delayed on Thursday morning. As many as 10 domestic and three international flights were delayed by up to three hours due to the strike, the airline official said.
The contractual ground employees of Air India Air Transport Services Limited (AIATSL) are on a strike at the Mumbai airport since Wednesday night against the non-payment of Diwali bonus, an official said.
AIATSL, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the national carrier, provides ground handling services to Air India across airports in the country. It has about 5,000 employees, including those on contract.
