Air India resumes flights as pilot strike halted

Air India has restored flights between Male’ and Trivandrum following a 10 day strike by the airline’s 700 pilots.

The pilots were demanding pay parity with colleagues flying international routes, and halted the strike promises by the government to look into the complaints.

The strike reportedly cost Air India US$3.35 million a day in lost revenues, as it was forced to cancel 70-80 percent of its domestic flights.
