DGCA notice to GoAir for scant remote-area flights

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued a showcause notice to Mumbaibased low-cost carrier GoAir for reportedly not operating adequate flights to remote areas. Scheduled airlines in India have to operate at least 10% of the number of their metro flights (category-I) to remote areas like Jammu & Kashmir, northeast, Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep (category-II).
"GoAir has not been meeting this mandatory rule of route dispersal guidelines (RDG) for some time now. DGCA has taken a serious note of this as the rule is meant to ensure adequate connectivity. GoAir management met senior regulatory officials to request them not to take any action on this issue," said a source.
