Air India on pilots' allegations: We accord top-most priority to safety

New Delhi: Three days after a section of its pilots asked if Air India had money for maintenance, the airline on Monday reiterated it's safety record. "Air India accords top-most priority to safety of the aircraft in its fleet.

It is a common practice for every airline to ground some of its aircraft for routine maintenance and checks periodically by its engineering department so that the aircraft are fit to fly in conformity to laid down standards. Our aircraft also go for these checks without affecting our flight schedule and causing inconvenience to our esteemed passengers," AI said in a statement Monday.

This statement comes after Indian Commercial Pilots' Association (ICPA, union of erstwhile Indian Airlines' pilots) questioned the airline management while claiming that 23 per cent of the fleet is grounded.
