NEW DELHI: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued a showcause notice to a senior executive of AirAsia India after a pilot recently alleged violation of safety norms by the airline.

A DGCA official said that the showcause notice has been served post the pilot’s allegations. “AirAsia India confirms receipt of the notice and we are assisting the regulator in its fact finding process. We will fully cooperate with the regulator,” said an AirAsia India spokesperson.

The pilot, Captain Gaurav Taneja, through a Youtube video on June 14, said that he has been suspended by the airline for standing up for “safe operations of an aircraft and its passengers”.
