SpiceJet cancels Ravindra Gaikwad’s ticket

NEW DELHI: SpiceJet today cancelled the ticket of Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad, who has been barred by domestic airlines from flying after he assaulted an Air India staffer last month.

After Air India and IndiGo, SpiceJet is the third carrier to cancel the ticket of the Lok Sabha member.

Sources said Gaikwad’s booking on Pune to Ahmedabad flight (SG 524) for April 3 has been cancelled by SpiceJet.

Following the incident, Air India along with four private airlines banned him from flying on their aircraft.

The domestic airlines’ body Federation of India Airlines (FIA) has taken a “strong view” of the incident and accordingly taken a decision to bar the MP from flying on their network, FIA sources said.

Jet Airways and three budget carriers — IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir — are the members of the FIA.
