New aviation policy in India dictates that unruly passengers can face ban from 3 months to 2 years – New Delhi Times

The government issues a new policy, which allows the barring of unruly passengers from flying for a minimum of 3 months to more than 2 years, based on the nature of the misdemeanor.

The government has issued a no-fly list of unruly passengers after a lawmaker admitted assaulting an official from state-owned carrier Air India.

The new rules will be applicable to foreign carriers as well, the government said in a statement, adding that unruly behavior has been categorised in three levels – verbal, physical and life threatening.

“The concept of no-fly is based on safety of other passengers, crew and the aircraft, and not just on the security threat,” the government said.
