The US transportation regulator has imposed civil penalties of $10,000 on Jet Airways after the Indian carrier agreed to settle a case related to its failure to provide accurate information on a tarmac delay.
Jet Airways reached a consent settlement with the US Department of Transportation, according to an order issued by the regulator late last month.
The Indian carrier “has paid the fine as per the order”, a Jet spokesperson said in a statement in New Delhi.
The incident occurred in 2011 when a dozen airlines were forced to divert due to bad weather to Bradley airport, north of New York, which was not a regular diversion airport for Jet Airways.
Since Bradley was not a regular diversion airport for Jet, the carrier did not have a coordinated contingency plan with the airport.
The issue related to Jet Airways’ failure to provide accurate information to the regulator on the tarmac delay on October 29, 2011.
