The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Wednesday, 21 September, extended restrictions on SpiceJet to operate only 50 percent of departures till 29 October 2022.

The DGCA, however, has noted that there is an appreciable reduction in number of safety incidents.

The DGCA on 27 July, ordered SpiceJet to operate not more than 50 percent of its flights "approved under Summer Schedule 2022 for eight weeks," after several of its planes reported technical malfunctions recently.

"The review has indicated that there is appreciable reduction in number of safety incidents. However, as a matter of abundant caution the competent authority has decided that the restrictions as imposed in the order dated 27 July 2022, shall continue to be in force till the end of the summer schedule ie 29 October 2022," DGCA said, in a circular released on Wednesday.

"During this period, the airline shall be subject to 'Enhanced surveillance' by DGCA," it added.
