Domestic flights disrupted due to poor crew response than fog!

At a time when Ministry of Civil Aviation is planning to increase flight connectivity to smaller cities, this report could be a wake up call amidst the tall claims of world class services. According to Domestic Air Traffic Report of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the percentage of passengers suffered due to domestic flight cancellations in the country has increased three times in November  this years than the last year.

The flight cancellation menace can’t be attributed to the fog alone which caused flight disruptions in north India in the last week of November; as the percentage of passengers suffered due to cancellation of domestic flights increased by around four times in September and three times in August.

In November, 24,201 passengers suffered due to flight cancellations which were only 8,524 in the same month of 2015. The passengers of Spice Jet suffered the most due to flight cancellations followed by Jet Airways and Jet Lite. “The flight cancellation rate was highest with Air Carnival which recorded 8.49 percent cancellations in November followed by Trujet, Go Air and Indigo,” said a senior officer of DGCA.
