Travelled back into BHX on Saturday afternoon. The air raids carried out by the Indian Air force happened few days after i got there. Not what you expect when you just unpacked your luggage . The Indian airlines are suffering massive losses since Pakistan closed their air space. Lets hope this situation resolves quickley.

The Delhi-Amritsar leg, and vica a versa are unaffected, its just an internal India flight, doesnt touch Pakistan airspace, and has been operating as normal last few days.
I was thinking more of the extra time required to fly the DEL-BHX-DEL sectors and whether that would be too long for the aircraft to fly the DEL-ATQ sectors.

VT-ANY is en route from Delhi, still taking an extended route south avoiding Pakistan.

Even though it's only 3x weekly for now it's great to see them back so quickly (y)
I love being proven wrong. Now will the airport please put out a positive press release and the BBC please support BHX and respond with a positive news article.

Cool.

The City Break city in yesterday's i newspaper was Amristar. The article started with how easy it is get there now that Air India fly from Birmingham to Amristar.

How refreshing.
A shame then that they currently dont, lol

I wonder if ATQ will return, I have my doubts if i'm being really honest with the state of Indian airlines at the moment.

Lol. That will confuse the heck out of the readers. I forgot that they were temporarily suspended. Fingers crossed for a return soon.

Amritsar to return in July, if not sooner. This is BHX though so there is a 'but', it is subject to aircraft availability and Pakistan opening their airspace completely.

It does confirm that there are 'no plans' to start Amritsar - Luton and despite the MP saying that they were meant to start in April the LTN ACL start of season report has no Indian airlines listed at all.
