SpiceJet airlines licence to carry ‘dangerous goods’ has been temporarily suspended as per orders by aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

 

The news agency PTI reported on Friday that DGCA has barred the airlines for alleged violations.

The SpiceJet spokesperson said in a statement that there was a “minor issue” as a shipper has declared a package as "non-dangerous goods".

 

Although, the budget airlines did not mention directly about the suspension.

 

The spokesperson said that the airlines has taken preventive and corrective action as advised by the DGCA.

 

According to the DGCA, any article or substance is termed as a ‘dangerous good’ if it poses a risk to health, property, safety or the environment.
