Fly­ing busi­ness should have no room for neg­li­gence

Khaleej Times - - NATION -

Air In­dia’s flight had a close shave, and thank­fully all 136 pas­sen­gers on board were un­hurt. The ac­ci­dent hap­pened in Trichy when the air­plane hit the air­port wall. It was bound for Dubai, UAE. This should not be ruled out as a one-off in­ci­dent. The air­line has been in news for such in­ci­dents in the past, too. It is all pri­mar­ily due to the neg­li­gence of staff, and in this case par­tic­u­larly, it was pi­lot’s mis­take, which is un­ac­cept­able. Air is still by far the safest ways to travel. How­ever, in­ci­dents such as this one scare peo­ple, and bring bad name to the air­line. In­dian civil avi­a­tion min­istry should act fast and set the right prece­dent. No ac­ci­dent should oc­cur be­cause of neg­li­gence. —K. Ra­ga­van, Bengaluru, In­dia
