Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has suspended the licence of budget carrier IndiGo’s aviation security training facility for alleged lapses in the examination system conducted by it.
The orders issued by the apex aviation security agency BCAS last week bar the Gurgaon-based airline from conducting security training programme for its employees any further, sources said.
The training academy is run by IndiGo’s parent company, InterGlobe Aviation.
This is a serious issue, the sources said. Following the suspension of licence, IndiGo would have to outsource the training programme, which would result in additional cost for the carrier, they said.
When contacted, an IndiGo spokesperson said the airline was in discussions with BCAS to resolve the issue.
“Any lapse on the security front can have major ramifications for the country’s aviation sector. At sensitive airports like Srinagar, a secondary ladder point check of passengers is carried by airline security staff,” sources said.
