In incidents of misbehavior by passengers after two alleged incidents of urination on two international flights of Air India, a passenger had opened the emergency door of Indigo flight 6E-7339.
New Delhi: On December 10 last year, a passenger opened the emergency exit on an Indigo flight between Tiruchirappalli. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has officially informed about this on Tuesday, stating that the incident was noticed and an inquiry was ordered. The DGCA had earlier informed that the flight was going to Trivandrum, but later issued a clarification saying that the flight was bound for Tiruchirappalli.
This is the latest in a spate of misbehavior by passengers after two alleged incidents of urination on two international Air India flights. In this, a passenger opened the emergency door of Indigo flight 6E-7339, in which other people were also aboard. The passenger has not yet been identified. However, no untoward incident took place as the flight had not taken off till that time.
This is not the first such case with Indigo flight. During Indigo’s Delhi-Patna flight, the case of three people drinking alcohol came to light. When the crew members forbade these people to drink alcohol, they started misbehaving. During this 80-minute flight, these people created a ruckus. When the plane landed at Patna airport, the accused were arrested. Indigo had informed the DGCO about the incident.
At the same time, during the landing earlier this month, the rear part of Indigo’s aircraft hit the ground. The incident took place with Indio’s flight number 6E1859 Airbus A321. This flight was coming from Dhaka to Kolkata. Sometime back, a matter of an engine failure of Indigo’s Airbus A-320 Neo aircraft with a ‘loud bang’ during flight was taken seriously by the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
