United Airlines suspends operations to smog-hit Delhi

A United Airline aircraft

The company also reportedly stated that at times when severe weather or major events seem to impact their operations, they issue travel waivers to allow the passengers change to alternate flights without paying anything extra as the changing fee. Travel must be rescheduled for the same cabin.

"United has temporarily suspended Newark-Delhi flights due to poor air quality concerns in Delhi and now has waiver policies in place for customers who are travelling to, from or through Delhi", an unnamed United spokesperson told the newspaper.

Customers scheduled to travel this past Thursday through Monday can book a new flight that departs on or before November 18 without paying change fees or any difference in fair, United said on its website.


The airline will continue to monitor the crisis and advises the public to watch for updates, a United airlines spokesperson told to DNA India.

Customers traveling over the next several days should visit the United Airlines website or download the company's mobile application for updates, the spokesperson said.

Delhi and parts of other North Indian states have been engulfed in smog since Monday, raising serious health concern. However, the odd-even plan will not come into force from Monday as the Delhi government has refused to go ahead with it after the National Green Tribunal scrapped nearly all exemptions, including those to women drivers and two-wheelers. Gahlot said the government's decision came in view of the directive by the National Green Tribunal (NGT), which ordered the withdrawal of all exemptions, including to two-wheeler riders and woman-only vehicles, under the odd-even scheme.
