Vistara imposes travel ban on Kunal Kamra

Mumbai: Full service carrier Vistara on Friday said it has barred stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra from taking its flights till April 27.
The decision has been taken after Kamra was found "guilty" for alleged misbehaviour by an internal committee of IndiGo, an airline official said.
The ban on Kamra comes into effect immediately, the official told PTI.
"Based on the order passed by an internal committee constituted by InterGlobe Aviation Ltd in compliance with the respective CAR and following due process, we have placed the passenger on our no-fly list until April 27, 2020," a Vistara spokesperson said in a statement.
InterGlobe Aviation is the parent of IndiGo.
Airlines are required to follow various Civil Aviation Requirements (CARs).
On January 28, Kamra was banned by IndiGo from flying with the airline for six months for allegedly heckling a private TV news anchor. The ban period was later reduced to three months.
As per norms, any allegation of misbehaviour mid-air by passengers has to be investigated by an internal committee set up by the carrier concerned.
Soon after IndiGo's ban, others carriers such Air India, GoAir and SpiceJet too announced travel restrictions on Kamra. At that time,
Vistara had not banned him from travelling in its flights.
On Thursday, the civil aviation ministry said no communication was made with IndiGo and Air India before any restriction was imposed by them on Kamra.
