India Bars ‘Unruly’ Passengers From Flying For 3 Months To Over 2 Years

India has issued new norms barring unruly passengers from flying for a minimum of three months to more than two years depending on the nature of the misdemeanour, the government said on Friday.

The government has issued a no-fly list of unruly passengers after a lawmaker admitted assaulting an official from state-run carrier Air India.

The new rules will be applicable to foreign carriers as well, the government said in a statement, adding that unruly behaviour has been categorised in three levels – verbal, physical and life threatening.

“The concept of no-fly is based on safety of other passengers, crew and the aircraft, and not just on the security threat,” the government said.
