According to reports, Jet Airways, Vistara and Air India are the carriers who took this initiative.
On Tuesday, the violent protest claimed second life in the city.
An additional 700 riot control police personnel have been rushed to Karnataka to tackle the situation.
The Rapid Action Force (RAF) personnel have also been sent to the violence-prone areas of Karnataka to assist the local administration to ensure peace, official sources said.
