The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Wednesday extended restrictions on SpiceJet to operate with only 50% capacity till October 29, 2022. The airline's departure capacity has been restricted to 50%.

However, as a matter of caution. However, as a matter of abundant caution, the authority has decided that the restriction imposed shall continue till the end of summer schedule which is 29 October,” DGCA said in an order reviewed by ET. DGCA had in the first week of July issued a show cause notice to SpiceJet for its failure to establish safe, efficient and reliable services following a spate of eight incidents within a month. The airline was asked to explain in three weeks why no action should be taken against it.
