In a statement, IndiGo said the “false cargo smoke warning” occurred on flight 6E-2513 (VT-IJA) and landing at Kolkata airport was given priority. According to a PTI report, a senior official said the DGCA would investigate the incident.

IndiGo shares traded red early in the morning after its flight from Delhi to Kolkata faced a “false cargo smoke warning” before landing on Sunday. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) of the aviation regulatory authority is investigating the incident.

As of 9:30 a.m., shares of the airline were trading at Rs 1,958, down 0.5% from the previous BSE close.

IndiGo said on Sunday that after arriving at Kolkata airport, inspections were carried out on the Airbus plane. “The warning has been confirmed as false”, and the necessary rectifications on the detection system were in progress.

According to a PTI report, a senior official said the DGCA would investigate the incident.

In a statement, IndiGo said the “false cargo smoke warning” occurred on flight 6E-2513 (VT-IJA) and landing at Kolkata airport was given priority.

In recent months, several airlines have encountered technical problems. On this subject, Arun Kumar, Director General of the DGCA, told CNBCTV18 that the probes do not mean air travel is unsafe. “Security is non-negotiable,” he said.

“There is a bit of hype and unnecessary hype around normal events. Many times an aborted takeoff or a missed approach is actually a safety maneuver and improves safety. Air travel is absolutely safe and our track record is tremendous,” he said.

IndiGo carried 57.11 lakh passengers in July, representing a 58.8% domestic market share, the DGCA said. IndiGo is the country’s largest airline and had a market share of 58.8% in July.
