In another news, GoAir had cancelled several flights for the second successive day on Tuesday, following an order by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to not overwork its crew amid escalating safety issues in the Indian airspace, according to an airline official. The cancellation of the flights by the airline, which operates more than 200 flights everyday to domestic and international destinations, comes amid heightened safety concerns because of snags on the Pratt and Whitney (P&W)-powered A320neo aircraft.
