Passengers on no-fly list can appeal against action: Centre

The interests of passengers will be protected before the civil aviation regulations regarding the no-fly list is finalised, civil aviation ministry sources said on Wednesday.

The ministry will put in place an appellate authority that will hear the pleas of passengers accused of being unruly. Ministry sources also made it clear that the Aadhaar card will not be made mandatory for passengers in future for entry to airports in view of a ruling of the Supreme Court.

Sources said that in case passengers accused of being unruly allege that they have been unfairly termed so and contest action against them, they can petition an appellate authority that will hear their version and then decide the issue. “The rights of passengers will be protected,” sources said.
