DGCA sets up panel on domestic airlines OTP

Civil aviation regulator DGCA has set up a panel to look into the procedure of computing of the on-time performance (OTP) data of domestic carriers by the airports.

Till recently, OTP was one of the USPs and a major contributing factor in IndiGo’s growth. However, it recorded its lowest OTP, at a poor 72.4% from four metro airports, in more than two years in November 2016. This led the airline questioning the data collection system, particularly at Mumbai airport.

“The DGCA has set up a panel last week which would look into the issue of both OTP and block time of airlines to ensure accuracy of data collected and filed to the regulator by the airport operators,” sources said.
