New Delhi: After national carrier Air India cancelled the Pune flight ticket of Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad for assaulting one of its staffers at Delhi airport, budget carrier IndiGo also refused to take him on board.

The Sena MP had booked a ticket on IndiGo flight to Pune for this evening, which has been cancelled by the airline, sources said.

 

"He had booked on IndiGo's fight today at 1750 hours from Delhi to Pune. But the airline has cancelled the booking and is refunding the entire amount," the source said.

In a related development, Tata-SIA joint venture carrier Vistara also joined the national carrier Air India and four private carriers' decision to ban Gaikwad from flying.

Disruptive and abusive behaviour by passengers is a serious issue and cannot be tolerated, both for safety and security reasons in a critical and sensitive industry such as aviation, as well for the safety and well-being of our staff and all other passengers, a Vistara spokesperson said.

 

"We support the statement made by Air India and the FIA, and are in full solidarity with them in support of the ban. The concerned individual will be barred from flying on any of our flights with immediate effect," the spokesperson said.

The airline also supports the promulgation of a "no-fly" list and concurs with the FIA and Air India in seeking the support of the Government and security agencies to enforce such a directive whereby passengers on the "no fly list" will not be permitted to fly on any of the airlines, Vistara said.
