Regulator extends safety flight cap on SpiceJet

Wednesday, 21 Sep, 2022 0

Struggling Indian airline SpiceJet has had its ‘enhanced surveillance’ monitoring period extended until late October.

The order by regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation means it can still only operate 50% of scheduled departures due to maintenance safety issues.

DGCA said its review found a reduction in safety incidents but restriction will continue.

DGCA initially on July 27 ordered SpiceJet to operate only 50% of flights for eight weeks.

Due to financial difficulties, SpiceJet put some pilots on leave without pay for three months, in part due to the flight cap.

SpiceJet reported another net loss for the quarter ending 30 June, 2021.
