• DGCA to meet airlines ahead of ICAO audit

    Aviation regulator DGCA will hold a meeting with airlines here tomorrow to assess their preparedness for the upcoming audit by the UN safety watchdog ICAO, an official said.
    The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) is set to carry out a safety oversight audit of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in November this year.

    The audit is conducted in areas related to legislation, organisation, licensing, operation, airworthiness, accident investigation, air navigation and aerodromes.

    Significantly, the DGCA has already commenced a special audit of all scheduled domestic airlines to check their compliance with various safety and airworthiness requirements.

    “The DGCA will hold a meeting with the airlines here tomorrow to check their preparedness for the upcoming safety audit by the ICAO,” the official said. Antoine Vermette Jersey
