Flyers must wear masks properly, may face legal action for flouting norms: DGCA
NEW DELHI: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Saturday directed security agencies to deny airport entry to passengers who are not wearing masks.
As per the latest guidelines, passengers who refuse to wear masks properly before take off will be taken off the aircraft.
While, passengers who do not wear the mask as per "Covid-19 protocols", which essentially involve wearing of masks properly -- not below the nose, despite repeated warnings will be treated as 'unruly'.
The DGCA has directed airlines, airport operators and CISF to ensure that passengers wear masks and maintain social distancing norms at all times during air travel and also at all times within the airport.
Then how do you allow airlines to sell food on board aircraft. Passengers remove masks to eat food isnt it ?
Why only laws for air Travel? What about Election rallies, marriage parties, cricket matches. re gious functions?
What about the ions rallies. Why Election commission or Courts not giving orders to arrest candidate whose rallies found flouting norms. Howz that..
All the rules are joke..airlines themselves are serving food and asking everyone to take off mask at once to eat the food.
what about local trains and metro, cradle of Corona,95% aren't wearing mask.
Norms are only at airports. No norms during ion campaigns???
But people watching cricket match in a crowded stadium is exceptable to the gt what a hipocracy
To hell with the mask! Worry about real diseases like heart attacks, strokes, kindney ailments,
Too Little Too Late..?? 2nd wave Already On Up-Swing in Many Mega Metro-Cities Like Nagpur, Nashik, Pune, Thane?
All flyers are wearing masks properly. But they can not cover their face with masks while taking food and other items provided by the airlines. How an individual wears a mask while eating. DGQA should ban selling food items on the airlines.
What about the Po itical Rallies in Bengal? No masks and social distancing norms
ask netas to follow the rule also and lead by example. Feku hardly wears mask and these days ion rallies are making a joke of everything.
Why DGCA was so lenient, so far? Is he was waiting for worsen of the situation?
DGCA IS THE MOST CORRUPT AND INEFFICIENT AGENCY. NO HELP TO CUSTOMERS, ONLY GIVES OUT SENSELESS DIRECTIVES AND ACTS AS A STOOGE TO AIRLINES.
Only exception is Narendra Modi cricket stadium, which is corona free. U don't need to wear mask while enjoying match
this rule is only for common man or all the citizens of India
Watched briefly the India-England T20 match yesterday in TV. Hardly any spectator in Ahmedabad wore mask, leave alone the social distancing. It's a mockery of Covid-19.
the real disease of India is po itical co ption...hmmm
first you morons ask the airport to clean and maintain the toilets well...Chennai airport toilet lie like a railway station one ...lol.
Good initiative by DGCA to curb Covid 19 vir s spread
DGCA should stop serving of food in the flight immediately and all passengers must be requested to travel with their food etc.
Social distancing should be followed at all times.. even during flight. So airlines should not have passengers in all seats!
Not wearing a mask property should result in jail for 1 month. Can't let rule followers suffer because of the ignorant few.
Its good. Fine people in public places for not wearing masks properly. Sell masks ch.
