Fog measures flop, 2 airlines pulled up

Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Thursday pulled up two airlines for their poor preparedness to deal with adverse weather conditions.
Taking note that a large number of flights from the two carriers were being diverted or cancelled during fog due to either non-CAT compliance crew or aircraft, the DGCA issued a direction to be followed by all airlines.
In its directions, DGCA said that close monitoring and planning of flights should be done according to the weather forecast with proper coordination of dedicated teams from Indian Meteorological Department, Delhi International Airport Limited, DGCA and Airport Authority of India. It mentioned that in case of zero visibility, no flight should be planned for Delhi and it should be rescheduled from its point of origin.
