Air Safety: DGCA bans clicking pictures near aircraft

: The Directorate of Civil Aviation (DGCA) via its latest circular on air safety has asked airlines to ensure that passengers do not indulge in photography while embarking or disembarking from aircraft.

It has also barred the Air crew from indulging in photography during any phase of flight.

Lately, a lot of complains have been recieved by the DGCA against passengers and crew including pilots on board for indulging in selfie-culture on flight.

The DGCA was recently made aware about the matter especially clicking of selfies in the cockpit by an RTI applicant.

The aviation regulator issued a circular on August 29 in which it said that taking photography during  flight  is  source  of distraction,  which  may  lead  to error and resultant reduction in safety.
