Government tells Jet Airways not to cause hardship to travelers


Air safety regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Thursday said Jet Airways has been instructed to use only ‘air worthy’ aircraft totally fit for flying and to ensure that passengers do not suffer because of flight cancellations.

DGCA B.S. Bhullar said that the regulator was watching the situation of grounding of aircraft and flight cancellations on a day-to-day basis and was working with the airline to ensure passenger safety and convenience.

The company has been advised to give the regulator ample notice of flight cancellations in order to make changes in flight schedules. In case of last minute cancellations, the airline has been advised to make other arrangements for the passengers either within the airline or with other airlines, civil aviation secretary Pradeep Singh Kharola said in response to a question at a briefing on the ministry’s performance.
