  • TDP MP Diwakar Reddy banned by 7 airlines after ruckus at Visakhapatnam Airport
16-06-2017 | Pratidin Bureau. |

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MP JC Diwakar Reddy has been banned by all domestic airlines following his alleged unruly behaviour at the Visakhapatnam airport as he was denied boarding for an IndiGo flight.
 
Full-service carrier Vistara and budget airlines — GoAir and AirAsia India — on Friday barred Reddy from their flights. Air India, SpiceJet and Jet Airways followed IndiGo on Thursday, which imposed the flying ban on him.
 
This is the second time Reddy has behaved outrageously at an airport. Last October, the Air India office at Gannavaram airport in Vijayawada was the recipient of his tantrums.
 
On Thursday, Reddy was scheduled to fly IndiGo’s flight 6E-608, which departs from Visakhapatnam at 8.10 am, to Hyderabad.
 
But he reached just 28 minutes before the scheduled departure, according to the airline.
 
As per norms laid out by the aviation regulator, airlines close check-in counters for all domestic fights 45 minutes prior to departure.
 
Reddy — who had allegedly vandalised the Air India office at Gannavaram airport in Vijaywada last year after he missed his flight — got into a verbal spat with the ground staff and threw a printer kept at the airline’s counter after he was informed that boarding for his flight had closed.
