India: Loss-making airlines will face safety audits
12 August 2009

The Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has initiated an audit of maintenance procedures of major airlines to check whether the
projected losses of Rs 100,000 million this fiscal year are leading to a compromise on passenger safety.
The audit will scrutinise availability of spares, timely maintenance and deployment of adequate number of engineers and technicians as well as try to capture the level of financial distress, especially situations that could endanger safety.
