Go First flight G8911 operating on 4th August from Ahmedabad to Chandigarh was diverted back to Ahmedabad after a bird hit: Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

In the recent past, there have been many incidents of the flights being diverted in the country. Following that the DGCA chief had to make a statement.

Aviation watchdog DGCA's chief Arun Kumar on Sunday said technical snags faced by domestic carriers in recent weeks did not have the potential to cause havoc and that even foreign airlines that came to India reported 15 technical snags in the last 16 days.

The country's civil aviation space is "absolutely safe" and all the protocols laid down by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) are followed, he said.

Against the backdrop of a spate of technical snags suffered by Indian airlines in recent weeks and DGCA curtailing operations of SpiceJet, Kumar stressed that there is no need to panic as none of the events that have been reported/discussed had the potential to cause havoc.

"All the snags experienced are routine and happen with all airlines and all types of fleet. In the last 16 days, even for the foreign operators who come to India, we have seen 15 technical snags, which have been attended and rectified," Kumar told PTI in an interview.

This is a developing story and more details are awaited.
