Suresh Prabhu tells DGCA to prepare safety audit of all airlines, airports


The government has ordered the aviation regulator to prepare a “comprehensive safety audit plan” of the entire aviation space within a month and then start the safety audit as soon as the plan is ready.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has been asked to do it. Read More
