DGCA monitoring Jet Airways situation

DGCA monitoring Jet Airways situation

New Delhi, Mar 19 (UNI) Aviation regulator DGCA is continuously monitoring overall situation of Jet Airways and based on the same, will take appropriate steps by the end of the month, it was officially stated here on Tuesday.

The statement said that DGCA reviewed the performance of Jet Airways on operational, airworthiness and passenger facilitation, it added.

"Current availability of aircraft in the fleet for operation is 41 and accordingly schedule for 603 domestic flights and 382 international flights has been drawn. However, it is a dynamic situation and there may be further attrition in coming weeks," the statement said.

DGCA instructed the leading private airline to comply with the relevant provisions of the applicable CARs for facilitation of passengers regarding timely communication, compensation, refunds and providing alternate flights wherever applicable.

The data is being monitored by DGCA on regular basis. DGCA is ensuring that all aircraft in the fleet whether in operation or on ground are maintained in accordance with Approved Maintenance Programme (AMP).

The operator was also directed to ensure that no Pilots/Cabin Crew/AMEs be rostered on duty who had reported stress of any nature. Additionally, all such staff should be current with all mandatory training requirements.

Earlier in the day, Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu directed Civil Aviation Secretary to hold an emergency meeting on the debt-ridden Jet Airways massively cancelling flights after grounding of a large part of its fleet.

The minister's direction came in the wake of the airliner drastically reducing its operations due to liquidity crunch and its inability to pay the leasing amount for the aircraft.
