After Kangana’s flight chaos, aviation regulator DGCA issues stern warning for airlines

Following the massive row over media frenzy on actor Kangana Ranaut’s flight from Chandigarh to Mumbai on Wednesday, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has now warned airlines with a suspension of a flight for two weeks if anyone is found taking photographs in an aircraft against rules prescribed by the government. Airlines have been told to act against regulators or face action.

Issuing a statement, DGCA said, “no person shall take any photograph except in accordance with and subject to the terms and conditions of a permission in writing granted by the Director General, a Joint Director General, a Deputy Director-General or the Director of Regulations and Information of the Civil Aviation Department.”

The permission, however, is “not applicable when such aircraft is landing, taking off or on ground at a defence aerodrome”, statement further said.

Pulling up airlines for often failing to adhere to government mandate rules “primarily because of lack of diligence”, DGCA issued a stern warning to flight operators.

“It has been decided that from now on, in case any such violation occurs, the schedule of flight for that particular route shall be suspended for a period of two weeks from the next day,” the statement said, adding, “the flight operation shall be restored “only after the airline has taken all the necessary punitive action against those responsible for the violation.”

“Such deviations result in compromise in maintaining the highest standards of safety,” DGCA specified in the statement.

Meanwhile a detailed report about the sequence of events has been sought from Indigo over alleged violation of social distancing norms by media personnel on board flight number 6E 264 in which Kangana traveled.
