DGCA conducts breath analyser test at Mumbai airport

Pune: The Directorate General Civil Aviation (DGCA) conducted a surprise breath analyser (BA) examination at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) recently and all personnel tested negative.
Passengers’ safety is the highest priority and is more than just a necessity for GVK-led Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL).
The negative result exhibits the airport’s commitment towards passenger safety measures in compliance with DGCA’s directive.
Without prior notice, DGCA randomly selected on-ground staff for the test; around 17 personnel were tested and were cleared.
In alignment with the latest edict by DGCA, any and every person performing safety-sensitive activities at the airside would be subjected to the breath analyser examination which included personnel from aerodrome operations, aerodrome rescue and fire fighting, ground handling, aircraft maintenance, and ATC.
Breath analyzer examination is a mandatory test to examine the intoxication rate of the airport personnel as a precautionary method towards passenger safety across India.
