Pilots, cabin crew can work longer in 'exceptional circumstances', says DGCA

New Delhi: Pilots and cabin crew can now work beyond their prescribed duty hours in case of "exceptional circumstances", including delays due to air traffic control and runway closure, according to aviation regulator DGCA.

Airlines can extend the duty hours of flight and cabin crew to "avoid inconvenience to passengers" in such circumstances.

The decision comes after the Delhi High Court, on May 22, ruled that the aviation regulator had the power to grant the airline companies an exemption from the stipulated Flight Duty Time Limitations (FDTLs) of pilots.
