In India, SpiceJet and Jet Airways operate the aircraft. While all of Jet’s five 737 MAXs are grounded due to the airline’s financial woes, SpiceJet grounded the 12 aircraft in its fleet following the DGCA directive.
Among others, under the new guidelines, the DGCA mandated a minimum experience level of the crew operating B737 Max aircraft to fly as Pilot in Command (PIC) as 1,000 hours and 500 hours for co-pilot on Boeing 737 NG type of aircraft.
The measures include strict access control to regulate entry to terminal building, airside, all operational area and other aviation facilities, intensive checking of vehicles entering car parking area to preclude the possibility of car bomb attacks.
Once the aircraft stopped climbing at an altitude of 3,330 feet, the pilots "realised their mistake", and consequently started engine 1 and brought back the plane to Delhi airport, stated the Directorate General of Civil Aviation report dated November 5, 2018.
