A passenger of an IndiGo flight was caught smoking in the aircraft toilet by the cabin crew. A strong odour of cigarette smoke came from the toilet on board IndiGo flight 6E-947.
Smoking is not allowed in domestic flights under India’s air safety rules.
After the cabin crew alerted the flight captain, the passenger was apprised of the smoking ban in planes due to safety concerns. After the flight landed at Goa, the matter was brought to the notice of the local police station. A FIR was filed against the passenger. The passenger was then handed over to the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).
The airplane was going from Ahmedabad to Goa on December 25.
Last week, a Vistara flight was delayed by three hours in Delhi after a passenger insisted he wanted to smoke in the plane.
