25 Indigo’s Crew Members Faced Enforcement Action During Six Months Of This Year

[New Delhi] 25 IndiGo’s Crew Members Faced Enforcement Action Just Six Months
44 crew members, including pilots, of
Jet Airways faced enforcement actions this year till June end, followed by
IndiGo (25),
Air India (22),
Spicejet (15),
GoAir (8),
Vistara (4) and
AirAsia (2).
On August 11, Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha informed Parliament that DGCA acted against 63 pilots of SpiceJet for operating flights beyond their stipulated duty hours. In 2014, there were 391 enforcement actions by the DGCA.
As per DGCA Reports ,270 airline crew violated safety norms this year
As many as 270 airline crew members, mostly pilots, were found violating safety norms this year by regulator DGCA which suspended over 150 of them, raising serious concerns about aviation safety.
The number paints an alarming picture as there was a total of
275 “enforcement actions” by DGCA last year, compared
270 such actions being initiated in less than eight months this year.
“Instances of safety violations are increasing. To curb such incidents, the regulator has stepped up surveillance activities,” a senior DGCA official said.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had earlier this week suspended flying licenses of two pilots of
Air India and
Jet Airways
for four years as they were found to be drunk soon after operating international flights. It had also directed the airlines to register FIRs against them.
Violation of safety requirements such as being drunk while operating a flight can also attract imprisonment.
One cabin crew member each from the two carriers have also been suspended for the same violation for one year.
As per latest data available with DGCA, there were safety violations involving around 270 airline crew members this year till August 12 and the number stood at 169 at the end of June.
Most of them were pilots, flight commanders and first officers.

Domestic Carriers Allowed to Roll out Zero Bag Fares:Modi Govt’s Diwali Gift

[New Delhi] Domestic Carriers Allowed to Roll out Zero Bag Fares :Modi Govt’s Diwali Gift
Modi Govt Bows To Domestic Airlines And Allows them to Roll out Zero Bag Fares
Three domestic carriers — IndiGo+SpiceJet + AirAsia India — had earlier approached the regulator with the “zero bag fare”, offering discount on no check-in luggage.
Aviation regulator DGCA has now allowed domestic carriers to roll out “zero bag” fares and charge penalty against check-in baggage for tickets booked under such an offer.
At present all domestic private airlines except national carrier Air India allow a flyer to carry up to 15 kgs of check-in baggage without any cost.
Air India allows its passengers to carry up to 23 kgs of check-in baggage free of cost.
“Airlines are allowed to offer no check-in baggage/hand baggage only fare scheme subject to the condition that the penalty to be imposed on a passenger, who avails such schemes but turns up with baggage for check-in at airline counter, cannot exceed the amount of incentive offered compared to lowest fare,” Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said in its updated Air Transport Circular for unbundling of services.
The circular was issued early this week.
The offer, however, came with a rider that those who book tickets at discounted fares but later decide to carry check-in baggage would have to pay a fee of Rs 500 for up to 10 kg and Rs 750 for up to 15 kg baggage.
In an air transport circular in July, which has now been superseded by the latest circular, the DGCA had said check-in baggage charges (above 15 kgs of free check-in baggage allowance) can be charged separately on opt-in basis as part of the unbundling of services.

Indian Aviation Minister Seems Fed up With Decade Old 5/20 Rule So Calls It Pain in the Neck

[New Delhi]Indian Govt Seems Fed up With 5/20 Norm So Calls It Pain in the Neck
GoAir+Vistara+AirAsia India Only Are Not Eligible For Operating International Flights From India as they do Not Meet the 5/20 Norm.
Making a strong case for doing away with the ‘5/20’ norm for domestic carriers,
Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju today dubbed this Decade Old Regulation as “a Pain in the Neck”.
Under the ‘5/20’ regulation, domestic airlines in operation for at least five years and with a fleet of minimum 20 planes are allowed to fly on international routes.
The minister’s stance comes at a time when the Ministry is reviewing the 5/20 norm and is discussing the issue with various stakeholders.
“I, for one, would like to get rid of it. Unfortunately it was a Cabinet decision taken by a government… The reasoning in that file and Cabinet note are rather funny. I think it has to go.
“It is an outdated thing. It is like a dinosaur and dinosaurs are heavier. When you wear it in the neck, it is a pain in the neck,” Raju said.
He was responding to a query about 5/20 norm during a ‘Tourism Investors Meet’
By bringing in changes in the more than decade-old rule, the government seeks to address the imbalance between domestic and foreign carriers.
At present, budget carrier GoAir, which had started operations in November 2005 is the only domestic carrier among the old players that is not eligible for overseas operations, as it does not have 20 planes.
New airlines Vistara and AirAsia India are also not eligible for operating international flights from India as they do not meet the 5/20 norm.
