DGCA to ask airlines to allow guide dogs in air

Thu, 06/20/2013 - 12:06 -- deepti.gahrotra

The government is going to make it mandatory for airlines to allow visually impaired people to board aircraft with their guide dogs.

While the directorate general of civil aviation(DGCA) had allowed this facility some years back, airlines continue to flout it with impunity. Now the regulator is coming out with new rules for both airlines and airport operators. The regulator will also make it imperative for carriers to have emergency procedure brochures in braille script as backup.
