SpiceJet To Operate Only 50 Percent Of Flights After Safety Concerns On DGCA Orders

SpiceJet has been facing alot of backlash lately due to safety concerns. Earlier, a Delhi-Dubai SpiceJet flight diverted to Pakistan’s Karachi due to a malfunctioning fuel indicator. A Kandla-Mumbai flight did a priority landing in Mumbai after cracks were spotted on the windshield by the pilot. Following such concerning incidents, aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has restricted SpiceJet to operate just 50 per cent of flights. Here’s what this means for passengers.

SpiceJet To Operate 50 Percent Of Flights For Summer Schedule

On orders of DGCA, SpiceJet has restricted its operations to 50 per cent of flights for the summer schedule. This is for a period of 8 weeks. However, SpiceJet assured passengers that there will absolutely be no impact on their flight services due to this order. SpiceJet had already rescheduled its flights due to the offseason or lean travel period. So, passengers need not be worried about flight cancellations or delays.
