Air India flight
Mumbai, May 21: The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has drawn attention of Air India CMD Arvind Jadhav to the reports about fatigued pilots operating Air India flights, saying it was concerned over the issue.

"It is shocking to learn through newspaper reports that the pilots employed by Air India are operating flights in fatigued condition and are not getting enough rest as per the stipulated international standards," NCP state spokesperson Mahesh Tapase said in a letter to Jadhav.

"This whole episode seems to be putting the air traveler in grave risk of life, thereby also raising doubts about the safety and service standards of the national carrier," he said.

Tapase pointed out that "Despite such facts being reported in newspapers, there seems to be no denial or clarification from Air India on the above mentioned issue."

"In the interest of the safety of air travelers, clarification of the above doubts through media will highly be appreciated, failing which, this issue will be taken up at the appropriate level," Tapase said.
