Pilot Errors Behind Kolkata Airport Safety Concerns?


Two apparent pilot errors within a span of 36 hours at Kolkata airport have triggered safety concerns. While the twin errors are being investigated, senior airport officials have called for more frequent interaction between pilots and air traffic control officers.

The first error occurred on Wednesday night when a SpiceJet Boeing B737-800 plane from Bengaluru that had just touched down exited the primary runway using taxiway R instead of taxiway C. According to sources, the pilot had been instructed to take taxiway C prior to landing as well as after touchdown but the plane still made the wrong turn. Read more
