DGCA issues show cause notice to Go First after flight takes off without 55 passengers


NEW DELHI: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Tuesday issued a show cause notice to Go First (erstwhile GoAir) its Bengaluru-Delhi flight on January 9 that took off without 55 passengers.
All these passengers were waiting in the coach at the origin airport to board the aircraft.
After getting the airline’s response to this lapse, the regulator said: “prima facie it emerges Go First failed to comply with (civil aviation rules).”
In this case “multiple mistakes such as lack of proper communication, co-ordination, reconciliation and confirmation have resulted in a highly avoidable situation and therefore, DGCA has issued show cause notice to accountable manager/ chief operation officer of Go First as to why enforcement action should not be taken against them for dereliction of their regulatory obligations. However, to follow the principles of natural justice, they have been given two weeks time to submit their reply to DGCA and based on that further action will be taken,” the notice said.
