Currently, Air India and Jet Airways fly to Europe. Kingfisher did fly to London, but they have suspended all their international flights. India and China have joined together in asking their airlines to boycott he EU's carbon tax.
Mr Ajit Singh, the Civil Aviation Minister, said that although the EU has requested all Indian airlines to submit the details of their emissions, none have done so yet, in accordance with the wishes of their government.

The EU has given a deadline of March 31 by which airlines have to comply with their requirements.
