Mid-Air Collision Between Two Indigo Aircraft Averted Over Bengaluru


Two IndiGo aircraft with nearly 330 passengers on board avoided a collision over Bengaluru on Tuesday after an automatically generated warning alerted the pilots of the planes, prompting authorities to launch a probe into the incident.

“The TCAS-Resolution Advisory system was triggered on two of our aircraft operating Coimbatore-Hyderabad and Bangalore-Cochin routes respectively on July 10. Following normal procedure this has been reported to the regulator,” the airlines said in a statement.

It was referring to the directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA). The traffic collision avoidance system monitors the airspace around a plane for other aircraft equipped with corresponding active transponders and gives pilots warning of possible collision risks.

It also instructs them about the avoidance action (resolution advisory) to maintain the desired separation between two aircraft. Read More
