  • Government proposes national no-fly list for unruly passengers

 The central government on Friday proposed a national no-fly list for unruly passengers and has called for the views of all stakeholders on this.

According to the Ministry of Civil Aviation, the proposal for public consultation envisages a flying ban in the time range of three months to two years or beyond depending upon different levels of misdemeanour.

The new rules were announced here at a press conference addressed by the Civil Aviation Minster Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Civil Aviation Ministry Secretary R.N. Choubey.

"We have put instances of unruly behaviour into three categories," said Choubey.

"Level one represents unruly behaviours such as verbal harassment, physical gestures etc, while level two includes physically unruly behaviour such as pushing, kicking, inappropriately touching," he said.

Level third will be life threatening behaviour of passengers such as damage to aircraft operating system, physical violence such as choking or murderous attempt or assault to flight compartment, he said.

The sanctions for level one would be suspension proposed to be three months, for level two suspension would be proposed for six months and for level it would be for two years, the official said.
