Air India flight
New Delhi, April 27: With around 20 flights being cancelled due to the pilot's strike, Air India management today moved swiftly to derecognise their union ICPA and declaring their strike illegal.

Around eight flights from Delhi and 11 from Mumbai were cancelled this morning while several others were delayed by more than three hours after a section of Air India pilots, belonging to Indian Commercial Pilot's Association (ICPA), went on strike from midnight.

"We have derecognised the ICPA, the strike is illegal and they have committed contempt of court. We are likely to move the court soon," a senior officer told PTI.

The ICPA offices in Delhi and Mumbai have been sealed early this morning.
