BCAS Suspends IndiGo Training Centre’s Licence
Mumbai: The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has suspended the licence of IndiGo's aviation security training centre for allegedly fudging and leaking question papers during security training tests to its cabin crew.
As a result of these alleged practices, the entire crew scored more than 90% marks, said Rajesh Kumar, the bureau’s director-general. The ‘illegal practices’ had been going on for 7-8 months, he added. According to rules, airlines have to impart training to their crew under a module approved by BCAS. “We are already in contact with the BCAS and are confident of demonstrating sufficient compliance to the satisfaction of the BCAS,” said an IndiGo spokesman. “We would like to clarify that this discussion only pertains to the aviation security training. All other trainings are continuing as scheduled and there has been no change in our operations as reported by a section of the media,” he added.
