Near misses in India up by 33%
10 March 2006

During 2005, 21 air-miss or near-accident cases involving commercial aircraft were reported in India, an increase of almost 33 per cent over the previous year. In two cases there was an actual risk of collision. In the wake of the rise in the number of aircraft, the transport ministry has started imposing a ban on general aviation aircraft during the peak periods at Delhi and Mumbai airports.
