New Delhi, September 11
Aviation regulator DGCA has requested for a report from IndiGo airways on the alleged violation of security and social distancing protocols by mediapersons in its Chandigarh-Mumbai flight that had actor Kangana Ranaut as a passenger, senior officers stated on Friday.
“We have seen some videos wherein mediapersons are standing too close to each other in the 6E264 flight on Wednesday. It seems to be a violation of safety and social distancing protocols. We have asked IndiGo to submit a report on this incident,” stated a DGCA official.
Another DGCA official confirmed that the regulator had requested for a report from the airline on this incident.
Ranaut was sitting in one of many entrance rows of the Chandigarh-Mumbai flight on Wednesday, the official added.
Many mediapersons have been additionally on board the flight.
As per the Civil Aviation Ministry’s social distancing guidelines issued on May 25, “on arrival at the destination, the passengers should be allowed to exit (the plane) in a sequence so as to avoid any bunching”. PTI
