Union civil aviation ministry has said that no airline was interested in operating night flights from Srinagar Airport. The ministry told Parliament—in reply to a query by Srinagar MP Farooq Abdullah— that though the infrastructure needed for night flight operation was available at the airport, no airline was interested in doing so.
