Airline bars 3 for Covid violation

New Delhi: Flyers who refused to follow Covid norms onward aircraft in March and April have now begun to face action. Airlines had initiated action against them under DGCA’s unruly flyer rules that include putting them on no fly list. The grounding period is decided after following a due process that takes over a month. Vistara is learnt to have barred three such unruly flyers for up to three months.

India’s biggest airline IndiGo, which accounts for almost one in every two domestic flyers, had by virtue of its market share seen the highest onboard Covidiots. The airline did not comment on whether it barred such flyers from flying and for up to what time period.

Onboard violation of Covid norms was seen mainly till mid-April after which the devastating second wave struck. The killer wave saw the number of air travellers nosedive and those flying in that period were mainly following the norms. “People were and are very scared after the second wave erupted. There have been no reports on onboard violation of Covid-19 norms since late April,” said sources.
