IndiGo says DGCA carrying out safety audit
Mumbai-InterGlobe Aviation, the company that operates budget carrier IndiGo, Thursday said regulator DGCA is carrying out an audit of its planes and that it has also received a number of show-cause notices to which it has already responded.

"There is currently a DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) audit on us which is combined with the annual main base audit. We have received a limited number of show- cause notices and have responded to accordingly," IndiGo said in an exchange filing.

The filing came in response to a clarification sought from the company.


PTI had Wednesday reported that the DGCA was conducting a special safety audit of IndiGo after coming across issues in its operations and engineering, besides issuing show-cause notices to the airline's chief operating officer Wolfgang Prock-Schauer and engineering head SC Gupta over the Pratt & Whitney engines issues, which have many times in the past endangered passengers' safety both on ground as well as mid-air.

IndiGo and GoAir, which operate Pratt & Whitney- powered Airbus A320 Neos, have been facing problems with these engines, manufactured by the US company, since their induction three years ago.
