Earlier, SpiceJet, the only carrier that runs daily flights to and from the greenfield airport in Sikkim's Pakyong, has decided to suspend services in the hill state from October 30 due to "operational constraints".

Officials in the state lamented that the decision will deal a blow to the state's tourism industry.

Meanwhile, DGCA had directed the airline to analyze engine oil samples from its Q400 fleet to check for the presence of metal and carbon seal particles. The watchdog has also ordered the carrier to carry out an inspection of the bleed-off valve screen and housing for evidence of oil wetness.
