"Inspite of repeated efforts, two flights each of Jet Airways, GoAir and IndiGo were diverted from Delhi to Jaipur. Airports Authority of India informed that one of the flight crew on the said flights was not Cat III trained ... DGCA viewed it very seriously that instructions issued from time to time are not adhered to by the airlines," a statement issued by the aviation ministry said.
As a punishment, the DGCA forfeited six slots these three airlines.
Prabhat Kumar, who took over as the regular DGCA on Wednesday, had clearly warned airlines earlier this month (when he holding the charge of DG in addition to being a joint secretary in the aviation ministry) that any diversions in fog due to airline's failure to have Cat III trained crew on flights to Delhi in fog time would mean losing slots. Incidentally, on the very first day of his taking over as regular DG airlines failed to do so and Kumar immediately cracked the whip.
The three airlines did not comment till the time this story was filed.
