The DGCA, issued another advisory for airline companies..

After a massive Republic campaign, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), on January 6, issued another advisory for airline companies to mandatorily take strict action against unruly behaviour from passengers amid rising cases of misbehaviour.

This comes after the shameful Air India incident when an allegedly drunk passenger flashed his private parts and urinated over a 70-year-old co-passenger on November 2022 New York to Delhi flight. 

In an official statement, the DGCA reminded the airline companies of provisions of the Aircraft Rules advising on what actions to take toward unruly passengers onboard a flight. It also underscored that inappropriate or non-action by the airlines toward such incidents "has tarnished the image of air travel in different segments of society".
