Services at nine airports, including Srinagar, Jammu and Leh, in north India were temporarily suspended in view of hightened tensions between India and Pakistan.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) later in the day said the services at the nine airports have resumed "as of now".
"We are strictly following all guidelines of the Air Force, and we will continue to do that," Sinha said on the sidelines of an event here.
Asked how many flights have been impacted, Sinha said, "I don't have the number. But, as I said, we are following the instructions of the air force."
Earlier on Wednesday, the DGCA issued a notice to airmen (NOTAM), saying flight operations at the airports in Srinagar, Jammu, Leh, Pathankot, Amritsar, Shimla, Kangra, Kullu Manali and Pithoragarh will remain shut from February 27 to May 27.
