Delhi High Court issues notices to private airlines seeking details on disability access
D.N.I.S. News Network- In a move to end anarchy on the part of private airline operators and complacency by Airport Authority of India (A.A.I. ) in not seriously addressing the issue of providing access for disabled passengers, the Delhi High Court has issued notices to six private airlines and A.A.I.
While hearing a petition filed by Disabled Rights Group (D.R.G.), Justices Vijender Jain and Rekha Sharma issued notices to Indian, Jet Airways, Sahara Airlines, Air Deccan, SpiceJet and Kingfisher Airlines, seeking details of the provisions made available by them to disabled people.
The court brought six private airlines under its scanner on the issue after A.A.I. submitted that the provision of special facilities on aircrafts is the responsibility of the airlines.
Not allowing A.A.I. to wash its hands off the issue, the court directed it to explain as to what facilities are being created for people with disabilities in its 20-year modernisation plan for airports in the country.
The case will now come up for hearing on 10 May 2006.
