On 10th April, Aviation regulator DGCA seeks timeline from airlines for implementing revised flight duty norms for pilots, aiming to address pilot fatigue issues.

  • Implementation of Flight Duty Time Limitations (FDTL) norms deferred in March amid airline requests.
  • Delhi High Court hearing prompts DGCA to seek tentative date for revised norms implementation.
  • Revised norms aim to provide more rest time for pilots and limit number of landings during night operations.
  • Airlines are required to submit quarterly fatigue reports with non-punitive and confidential policies.
