Air India recorded maximum safety violation cases: Union Minister Jayant Sinha

National carrier Air India recorded the maximum cases of safety violations in the last three years, followed by Jet Airways and SpiceJet, Union Minister Jayant Sinha said in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.

Air India, along with its subsidiaries Air India Express and Alliance Air, registered 185 cases of violations where punitive measures were taken against the crew in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

These measures included a warning to personnel, de-rostering, corrective training and suspension of licences, he said in response to a question.

During the same period, Jet Airways recorded 154 instances where penalties were imposed on their crew and SpiceJet saw such 142 cases.

Market leader IndiGo recorded three cases during this period.

But over the years there has been a decline in such instances, the government said.
