New Delhi, July 15

With restrictions on the number of passengers at Heathrow airport imposed to cope with a staff crunch, Virgin Atlantic cancelled its Delhi-London flight on Thursday and other carriers could also pull out their India-London flights from their summer schedule.

The limit on the number of passengers at one lakh a day has been imposed from July 12 to September 11.

There are 102 direct flights a week between India and Heathrow airport — British Airways (41), Virgin Atlantic (21), Air India (33) and Vistara (seven). Heathrow airport in London is one of the busiest airports in the world. Virgin Atlantic said it was contacting affected customers and would rebook them on an alternative flight.
