New Delhi: Civil aviation minister Suresh Prabhu on Friday ordered a high-level inquiry into a serious incident on Friday when a Dubai-bound Air India Express aircraft’s wheels hit a perimeter wall during takeoff at Trichy airport in Tamil Nadu in the early hours of Friday. 

In a major announcement, the minister also said he had recently ordered “a third party professional organisation to look into various safety aspects” in national carrier Air India. 

 

A regular “safety compliance report” of all airlines will also be prepared by government aviation agencies.  Air India has also “constituted a sub-committee of the board headed by an independent director of the board for looking at all safety-related issues within the organisation including subsidiaries,” the minister said, adding that “DGCA officers are at the site for preliminary inquiry”.
