DGCA makes masks mandatory


Nagpur: Civil Aviation regulator DGCA on Wednesday said passengers who do not wear masks on a flight can be treated as ‘unruly’ and removed before departure.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation said, “Airline shall ensure that all passengers are wearing Face Mask properly and continue to wear the mask throughout the journey. The face masks can be removed under exceptional circumstances and for permitted reasons only.”

Earlier the Delhi High Court had asked the DGCA to issue guidelines to make masks mandatory and enforceability of Covid-19 protocols at airports and in airplanes. This comes after recording a rise in Covid-19 cases in the country.

The Bench of Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Sachin Datta ordered that those air passengers who violate guidelines on wearing of masks or refuse to follow hand hygiene norms should be put on the no-fly list.
