Airline Air Asia spots a "Drone-Like" object on runway and flights suspended twice at Delhi Airport.

The country's busiest airport saw operation getting halted for an hour in the morning and 45 minutes late in the evening, after Air Asia spotted a Drone-Like object. Many flights were affected due to the halting of flights twice during the day.

 

Around 1116 hours, a pilot of a Chinese Airline flight (CI 181) coming from Taipei to New Delhi noticed a flying object at the time of landing at runway 28/10, which was shut thereafter for operations from 1120 to 1220 hours, The Chinese Airline could not be immediately contacted for comments.  Again a “drone-like object” was spotted by an AirAsia pilot around 1910 hours, following which operations were suspended on all three runways of the airport for about 45 minutes.

 

“We will be registering a case under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code,” DCP (Indira Gandhi International Airport) Sanjay Bhatia said, when asked about the two incidents at the airport. Section 188 pertains to disobedience to order that has been duly promulgated by a public servant.

 The DGCA has banned the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, which includes drones, for commercial use. Following the shutdown of runways in the evening, two Air India flights were diverted to Lucknow and Ahmadabad while one flight each of GoAir and IndiGo was diverted to Jaipur.
