'Govt to hire professional org for AI flight safety'

The government is set to hire a professional organisation to “look into” the safety aspects of Air India, Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu stated on Friday.
“In a recent review of airline safety, I have ordered to put in place a third party professional organisation to look into various safety aspects at @airindiain,” Prabhu posted on Twitter, hours after an Air India Express aircraft hit the boundary wall of the airport at Tiruchirapalli in Tamil Nadu while taking off for Dubai. He also noted that growth in the aviation sector should not come at the expense of safety.
“Safety of the passengers is of paramount importance for us. We will take all that’s required to put safety on top of aviation agenda. Growth can’t be at the expense of safety,” tweeted Prabhu.
He informed that the officers of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation had reached the airport at Tiruchirapally for preliminary inquiry and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau officers had also been deputed.
