FAA lowers India safety rating

The FAA has decided to lower the rating of India from I to II, believing that safety checks carried out on the airlines of the country were insufficient.

Non-compliance with ICAO standards: the General Directory of Indian Civil Aviation (DGCA) has been relegated last week by the U.S. authority on the same level as Swaziland, Zimbabwe and Ghana in aviation safety . With immediate consequence freeze any expansion in the United States for Indian carriers, and ban U.S. companies from offering codeshare of flights operated by Indian airlines. The European EASA or Japanese and Singaporean counterparts have so far not followed the FAA decision.
