No-Fly List Norms Likely In July First Week: Government

The norms for no-fly list to rein in unruly passengers are expected to be ready early next month, the government said today amid a parliamentarian being barred by domestic airlines for allegedly creating ruckus. A revised Civil Aviation Requirement (CAR) is being finalised after receiving comments from the stakeholders. The civil aviation ministry has already come out with draft rules for a ‘national no-fly list’ of unruly passengers for all domestic carriers, under which the flying ban could extend from at least three months to an indefinite period. The CAR related to the no-fly list is expected to be notified in the first week of July, Civil Aviation Secretary R N Choubey told PTI. Lok Sabha member from TDP J C Diwakar Reddy is barred by major airlines from taking their flights following allegedly creating the ruckus at Vizag airport last week as he was denied boarding by IndiGo. Reddy belongs to the same party as that of Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju.
