150 technical snags in 3 months; DGCA slashes Spicejet flights

NEW DELHI, July 31: A total of 150 technical snags in aircraft were reported by scheduled airlines due to system malfunction during the three months from April 1 to June 30 this year. Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia had told the Lok Sabha on Thursday that a total of 478 technical snags were reported in the last one year, from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022.

From May 2 to July 13, the DGCA undertook a special drive of 353 spot checks, according to the Civil Aviation Ministry.

DGCA's chief Arun Kumar has said technical snags faced by domestic carriers recently did not have the potential to cause any accidents. Even foreign airlines that came to India reported 15 technical snags in the last 16 days.

The protocols of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) are strictly followed and the civil aviation in India is "absolutely safe," Kumar told PTI in an interview.

On July 27, the DGCA directed SpiceJet to operate only 50 per cent of its flights for eight weeks of summer schedule in view of the high rate of technical snags faced by the airline in the recent past. The aviation regulator will also keep the airline's operations under close surveillance.

Responding to the DGCA order, SpiceJet said in a statement, “Due to the current lean travel season, SpiceJet like other airlines had already rescheduled its flight operations. Hence, there will be absolutely no impact on our flight operations.”
