IndiGo Boss Praises Aviation Regulator, Says Recent Incidents "Not Safety Issues"

New Delhi: IndiGo airlines boss Ronojoy Dutta today said India's aviation regulator has done "a superb job" in diligence lately, claiming that Indigo is "one of the safest airlines in the world as per long-term trends".

The Chief Executive Officer was speaking to NDTV as the private carrier completed 16 years. About recent incidents involving IndiGo and other airlines, he said, "We have had a couple of incidents on diversions but none of them were safety issues."

IndiGo was in the news last month after its flight from Sharjah to Hyderabad had to be diverted to Karachi in Pakistan after the pilot reported a technical glitch. 

"Our pilots are trained to be super conservative. We like to solve problems on the ground and not in the air," said Mr Dutta.

He said the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) deserves credit: "They are way up in terms of efficiency and competence and diligence."
