NEW DELHI: India’s regulator for civil aviation security, the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has revoked orders for suspension of its Aviation Security Training Institute license of India’s leading carrier IndiGo.

The airlines in a statement on Friday said: “the BCAS order suspending our Aviation Security Training Institute license stands revoked. IndiGo accords utmost importance to the safety and security of its passengers and operations. We have always demonstrated compliance with all regulatory requirements.”

Last week, BCAS had suspended the licence of budget carrier IndiGo's aviation security training facility for alleged lapses in the examination system conducted by it.

This had barred the IndiGo from conducting security training programme for its employees. The training academy is run by IndiGo's parent company, InterGlobe Aviation.

Following the suspension of licence, IndiGo would have to outsource the training programme, which would result in additional cost burden to the carrier.
