Srinagar: The Kargil courier air service
resumed on Wednesday after remaining suspended for over a fortnight
due to bad weather with 248 stranding passengers airlifted in
two sorties from Srinagar and Jammu.

"The air force AN-32 Kargil Courier Service resumed
operations and 71 passengers were airlifted from Kargil to
Srinagar and 36 from Kargil to Jammu," an official spokesman
said.

He said 86 passengers were airlifted from Srinagar to
Kargil and 55 passengers from Jammu to Kargil.

The Kargil courier service, which usually makes three
sorties between Srinagar and Kargil and one sortie between
Jammu and Kargil in a week, operated last time on January 3.

It could not operate over the past fortnight due to
inclement weather conditions leaving many passengers stranded
at Jammu, Kargil and Srinagar.
