DGCA starts strict monitoring of services of airline crew

New Delhi: Armed with powers to deal with indiscipline among the crew of airlines operating in the country, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has started strict monitoring of their services to ensure they adhere to rules and initiated penal action against some guilty staffers.
It has issued stringent directives to airlines to take effective measures to check indiscipline.
Following the directives, Air Sahara terminated the services of two cabin crew members after they were found smoking in the lavatory of an aircraft which was on its way to Singapore about a fortnight ago, the sources said. Smoking is strictly prohibited in aircraft under international rules.
Similarly, two Jet Airways cabin crew members were suspended as they boarded a flight in Chennai even after failing the pre-flight alcohol test, they said.
The checks also led Indian to suspend two of its crew members, including a lady co-pilot, for leaving their seats when the seat-belt sign was on while flying on the Delhi-Mumbai sector.
