DGCA safety audit to check Jet Airways for salary delay


Aviation regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), will, in the next few days, conduct a safety audit of Jet Airways on several criteria that will likely include “delays in meeting payroll.”

India’s second-largest carrier by market share is running two-and-a-quarter months behind salary obligations to most employees.  A top official at the DGCA confirmed Jet’s audit. While audits happen for all airlines, they are more frequent for those with issues,  the official added.

Jet said the audit has nothing to do with salaries. “The DGCA is planning a main base inspection, which is carried forward from the previous year.

This is a scheduled audit and not a special one as suggested by you,” a spokesman said, adding: “Your assumption of linking it to salary is incorrect.”   Read More
