Indian Skies Stay Shut

India will not let foreign airlines serve domestic routes, and will bar private airlines from foreign destinations, Civil Aviation Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said in an interview published Monday.

Azad said the government, which is liberalizing aviation, would never allow foreign operators on domestic routes.

"We have air taxi operators to do the job and we want them to stick to it," the paper quoted him as saying.
