DGCA withdraws 186 flight slots of SpiceJet
Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the regulator for the aviation sector, has withdrew 186 slots of SpiceJet and asked it to clear salary dues of all its employees in the next ten days. The move came following deteriorating condition of the airline and large scale flight cancellations.
The aviation regulator also asked SpiceJet to file a convincing schedule by 15th of this month to clear its 1,500 crore dues to various vendors including airports and oil companies.
DGCA also directed the airline not to take bookings of flights over one month and refund the booking amount to the customers of cancelled flights in 30 days.
