Behave yourself on India flights to Oman

Think twice before you create a nuisance on a flight.

Some Indian carriers have now started carrying restraints, such as handcuffs and ropes, onboard all international flights, including those to Muscat, to restrain disruptive passengers, if necessary.

A senior official of an Indian airline said the move comes after the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in India permitted airlines to carry restraints onboard. “We have all types of security arrangements, including restraints on board, and use them to ensure the safety of flights, as and when required. However, it is up to the cabin crew to decide whether or not to use them,” a senior official of an Indian

airline said.

While some airlines use plastic handcuffs, others use ropes to control misbehaving passengers.
