New Delhi: Corona has created terror across the country, with Air India's regional arm Alliance Air on Thursday placed four passengers on the "no-fly" list for not complying with the corona protocol. On March 16, four passengers were declared "unruly" after refusing to wear masks even after repeated appeals from the pilot and crew of the Jammu to Delhi flight.
After flying at Delhi airport, the four passengers were handed over to the security agencies. Airline sources said the decision was taken after the pilot Captain Vikas Tomar appealed and then ordered four persons to wear masks and follow the corona protocol. DGCA issued a circular for treatment of passengers violating corona protocol, who were violating the rules even after repeated warnings during flight.
DGCA also said that such passengers can be placed on the no-fly list for at least three months. In-flight, if a passenger does not follow the mask properly even after repeated warnings, he or she should be de-boarded if required before departure. The DGCA had issued guidelines on behalf of the Delhi High Court last week after taking note of the fact that on 5th March, a number of passengers wore masks under their chin and issued stringent guidelines on the Air India aircraft from Kolkata to New Delhi.
