Aviation regulator DGCA has suspended the flying licence of Coimbatore-based Air Carnival, the third regional airline to face such an action in the last eight months.

Air Carnival, which has not operated a single flight since early April, follows Air Pegasus and Air Costa, whose air operator permits have also been suspended by the DGCA.

“The DGCA has suspended Air Operator Permit of Air Carnival after it failed to satisfy the regulator in its response to the show-cause notice,” a DGCA official said.
