[New Delhi] Aviation Regulator Derosters ATC After Fully Loaded IndiGo & Spicejet Came Face-2-Face
Aviation regulator DGCA has derostered an air traffic controller (ATC) for the incident in which two fully-loaded passenger aircraft came face-to-face on the taxiway at the Delhi airport today.
“The ATC who cleared the landing of IndiGo flight as well as allowed the SpiceJet aircraft, for Hyderabad, to leave the holding area for refuelling has been taken off the duty till the probe is completed,”
However, providentially a disaster was averted after commanders of both the planes alerted the air traffic control and switched off their engines.
Meanwhile, sources also alleged that the delay in arrival of the Follow-Me-Jeep, operated by the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), was also a contributing factor in the incident.
