Saudi Arabia revoked Qatar Airways’ license and ordered its offices to be closed within 48 hours. Any licenses granted to Qatar Airways employees would also be withdrawn, Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation said. The move comes a day after GACA banned all Qatari planes from landing in the kingdom’s airports, following the worst rift in years among the Gulf countries. Qatar may be cut off from rest of the Gulf countries but flights between India and Doha will operate as usual for now. The travel time, however, will most likely increase due to longer routes.
The DGCA filed complaint against 34 pilots of four airlines — Jet, IndiGo, SpiceJet ad GoAir. The police complaint was filed by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation for “making obscene remarks” against its top officials on social media. The bad blood between pilots and the senior DGCA official happened when they mentioned his designation incorrectly in a mail. Following this, the DGCA asked Jet Airways to check the mental “alertness” of 10 of its pilots and see if they are fit enough to be allowed to fly. This agitated other pilots who then started circulating inappropriate remarks against the DGCA on social media.
