A senior ministry official claims that the suspension of the security project means that no Go First flight operations will take place and that the most recent directive serves as a warning for the infraction.
Due to a BCAS decision about a security infraction from September of last year, low-cost airline Go First will have all of its flights at the Delhi airport suspended for two hours on April 1.

According to a March 16 order from the civil aviation ministry, the airline’s security programmer would be stopped on April 1 from 1200 to 1400 hours. In order to decrease the effect of the suspension on the consumers, the carrier has also been advised to take the necessary steps.
A top ministry official claims that the suspension of the security programmer means that there won’t be any flying operations and that the most recent instruction is essentially a warning for the infraction.

Due to a technical issue, Go First’s flight from Delhi to Mumbai on September 24, 2022, turned around and returned to the taxiway. According to the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, there were 95 passengers onboard, and they were transferred to a parked aircraft by the airline’s ferry vehicles without authorization from or prior notification to the relevant authorities, including the CISF. (BCAS).
A BCAS order limiting the movement of passengers and their luggage from ramp to ramp was issued in September 2021. Go First claimed that in the meantime, the passengers were moved through the terminal building for security inspection. In September 2021, BCAS issued an order, and it later found that there had been a violation.
BCAS ordered the airline to halt its security programme from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on January 19 as punishment for disobeying its directive. On January 23, the ministry heard the airline’s appeal and decided to maintain the regulator’s ruling on hold.
Delhi International airport
After making a determination, the ministry adjusted the BCAS order but found that there had been a violation. In accordance with the directive signed by Rajiv Bansal, secretary of civil aviation, the airline’s security programmed at the Delhi airport will be suspended for a period of two hours on April 1.
The secretary stated that the order would go into force on April 1, 2023, from 1200 to 1400 hours, and as a result, no operations would be allowed during that time.
The carrier has also been instructed to inform the passengers appropriately or take other relevant action to lessen the impact of the suspension on the passengers.
