Two SpiceJet pilots suspended for safety norm violation

New Delhi, July 16 (IBNS): India's aviation watchdog DGCA on Tuesday suspended two SpiceJet pilots for a safety norm violation incident at the Kolkata airport on July 2, reports said.

In the July 2 incident, the SpiceJet aircraft had veered off the runway and damaged some runway edge lights.

While the airline had then claimed it was due to heavy rainfall and wet tarmac, the DGCA found the plane had touched down a little too late and veered off the centre line, Hindustan Times reported.

The SpiceJet pilots have been suspended for six months.

This comes a day after an Air India pilot was suspended for being involved in a public brawl with a cabin crew on June 17
