DGCA monitoring 'sick leave protest' at IndiGo, Go First

Flight operations of IndiGo and Go First were disrupted recently due to mass ‘sick leave’ by maintenance technicians and others reportedly protesting over low salaries.

Over the last 10 days, IndiGo has seen two bouts of disruption caused by groups of its employees calling in sick at work.

Earlier, a significant number of cabin crew members of IndiGo went on leave on July 2 at the same time as other airlines including Air India, AirAsia India, AkasaAir and Jet Airways were conducting their recruitment drives.

However, IndiGo said it is in the process of addressing some of the issues related to employee remuneration and asserted that its flight operations continue to be normal.

Whereas, Go First said a ‘few people’ who had absented themselves from duties in the last two to three days were "misguided" and after counselling, they have assured the carrier that they will rejoin office either on Wednesday or Thursday.

Aviation regulator DGCA on Wednesday said it hopes the situation will improve soon. "We are closely monitoring the situation. As of now, operations are normal. Hopefully, it will be resolved shortly," DGCA said.
