Blow to Air Vistara! DGCA imposed a fine of Rs 70 lakh, know which rule was ignored

DGCA Fine On Air Vistara: Civil aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has given a big blow to Air Vistara. A fine of Rs 70 lakh has been imposed on Vistara (70 Lakh Fine Imposed On Vistara). This entire action has been taken for not operating the minimum number of mandatory flights for the under-served areas of the Northeast Region of the country. The company was accused of ignoring the UDAN scheme.

This fine was imposed in October last year for not following the rules in April 2022. A DGCA official said that the airline has already paid the fine. Responding to the matter, a Vistara spokesperson said that Vistara has been following the RDG (Route Dispersal Guidelines) for the past several years.

What did Air Vistara say in the clarification?

However, the airline’s spokesperson admitted that some flights had to be canceled due to the closure of the Bagdogra airport. Due to which the number of flights required in April 2022 decreased by only 0.01 percent i.e. only one flight was reduced. According to the rules, airlines have to provide a minimum number of flight services in low service areas.

The company has also confirmed to work on these routes with its extra capacity. The company has shown this in the past as well. Airlines of Tata Group operate their flight services under this rule on Srinagar-Jammu-Srinagar, Bagdogra-Dibrugarh-Bagdogra and Dibrugarh-Guwahati-Dibrugarh routes. The flagship program of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Regional Connectivity Scheme UDAN i.e. Ude ‘Desh Ka Aam Nagrik’ was launched in April 2017.
