Aviation regulator DGCA is in discussion with domestic airlines to implement a fully automatic system for recording on-time performance (OTP) at four private airports for data accuracy.

The moves comes after Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) came across some instances of data being fudged during random sampling following a complaint by a budget carrier airline in this matter, a senior official said.

At present Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bangalore airports submit OTP data of each airline to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) which after scrutiny puts out this data for all airlines on a monthly basis.

OTP is one of the several measures to determine an airlines operational efficiency. It indicates whether an airline is operating its flights on time or not.

“At present there are a total of 375 stands (boarding areas) across the four private airports. Of these, only 115, or 36 per cent, are automatic ones and records the exact time of departure or arrival of an aircraft with the help of visual docking guidance system. However, in the rest of the areas, this is done manually,” the official said. Read More…
