NEW DELHI: A collective fine of Rs 1.2 crore has been slapped by the BCAS and the DGCA on IndiGo airlines, while a fine of Rs 90 lakh was imposed on Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) after passengers, of a diverted flight, were allowed to move on and have refreshments on the apron, and intermingle with others while moving to and fro from the adjacent apron control building.

The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) imposed a penalty of Rs 1.20 crore on IndiGo Airlines, while a fine of Rs 60 lakh was imposed on Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL). Meanwhile, a fine of Rs 30 lakh was imposed on the airport by the Directorate of General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

The incident took place after flight 6E2195, from Goa to Delhi, was diverted to Mumbai due to operational issues attributed to low visibility conditions in the capital on Sunday, prompting authorities to issue show cause notice to both the airline and the airport. The video of the incident had gone viral on social media.
