Jet Airways, SpiceJet, Vistara Flag Concern Over ‘Misreporting’ Of Technical Snags In Parliament


Jet Airways, SpiceJet and Vistara have flagged serious concerns over the data on technical snags faced by airlines in 2017, which was provided by the government in Parliament.

They maintained that the data was leading to a “false illusion” about safety of the airlines.

In a letter to Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha, the airlines have demanded an investigation by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to the matter so that accurate information is provided to Parliament and public at large.
