A pilot who has put his papers said that their demands have been pending for a long time even as the airline management hasn’t given a strong assurance.

Air India on Sunday said that the issues with the fuel retailers over fuel payment would be resolved soon.

An Air India spokesperson said that issues with oil companies are being sorted out and would be resolved early, CNBC-TV18 tweeted.

The airline has “taken measures to ensure” that there is no disruption in flights and inconvenience to passengers.

The spokesperson added that there is no reason for any concern by passengers.

PSU oil majors including Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum, and Hindustan Petroleum on Thursday had written a letter to Air India for making the monthly lump sum payment by October 18, as reported by PTI, to avoid stoppage of fuel supply at six major airports including Mohali, Patna, Kochi, Vizag, Pune, and Ranchi.
