and Go First airlines have not paid approximately Rs 2.74 crore for using the airport's runway till June 1 this year, Minister of State for Civil Aviation V K Singh said on Wednesday.

Go First was previously known as GoAir. The Indian carriers have taken a big financial hit due to the travel restrictions since March 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In his written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha, Singh said that the number of private companies, which includes international operators, that used the runway of the airport during the last three financial years is 500.

"A total of Rs 9,252 by Air Odisha Aviation Private Limited, Rs 1.23 (approx.) by Go Airlines India Ltd, Rs 3,964 by Karnavati Aviation Pvt Ltd, Rs 1.51 crore (approximately) by Limited, Rs 4,083 by Supreme Transport Organisation and Rs 1.14 lakh (approximately) by Thai Air Asia have not been paid for using the runway of airport till June 1, 2021," he stated.

All Indian airlines have taken measures -- such as cutting salaries and firing employees -- since March 2020 to conserve their cash flows.
