ICPA moves Delhi HC on Ajit’s flying hour order
Justice Suresh Kait also asked the Indian Commercial Pilots’ Association (ICPA) to file an additional affidavit with detailed information on changes made by Air India in the FDTL in pursuance of Singh’s order. The court would now hear the matter on October 5.
The ICPA, in its plea, has sought setting aside the minister’s order asking the national carrier to “immediately implement” the guidelines of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), which asked pilots and cabin crew to put in more flying hours.
“The pilots are not taxi drivers who can be asked to go to Gurgaon from Delhi after a long drive just to optimise the use of the workforce,” said ICPA counsel Mukul Rohatgi.
