The new norms, which will be implemented from June 1, will provide rest time for pilots and seek to alleviate pilot fatigue.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has decided not to extend the June 1 deadline for implementing the revised flight duty norms for pilots and asked airlines to submit the revised schemes by April 15. The new norms, which will be implemented from June 1, will provide rest time for pilots and seek to alleviate pilot fatigue.

The Federation of Indian Airlines (FIA), which has Air India, SpiceJet and IndiGo under its fold, had written at least twice to the regulator seeking more time for implementation of the revised Flight Duty Time Limitations (FDTL) norms were issued on January 8.

But DGCA, as per a statement issued to the FIA, has said that airlines have to take all necessary steps to roll out the revised FDTL CAR, with effect from June 1, 2024.

The revised norms will provide increased weekly rest time to 48 hours for pilots and limit the number of landings to two during night operations. Besides, the night hours for pilots will be extended to cover the period from 0000-0600 hours, whereas it was 0000-0500 hours earlier.
