The Federation of Indian Airlines (FIA) on Saturday revoked the flying ban imposed on Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad.
FIA consists of four leading private carriers-Jet Airways, SpiceJet, GoAir and IndiGo. The decision came a day after Air India lifted the ban imposed on the Sena MP.
An FIA source told media that the federation has lifted the flying ban imposed on Gaikwad following Air India’s decision on the same.
On March 24, Air India barred Gaikwad from flying with it after he slapped a ground staffer with his chappal at the Delhi airport. Following the airline’s decision, FIA also barred the Lok Sabha member from flying.
On Friday, Civil Aviation Ministry has reportedly asked Air India and other airlines to lift the ban on Gaikwad citing the “undertaking of good conduct” given by him.
Meanwhile, Trinamool Congress (TMC) Rajya Sabha MP Dola Sen has delayed the Air India flight from Delhi to Kolkata by 30 minutes on Friday after she refused to abide by the security protocols.
