In an unusual incident at Delhi airport on Tuesday, a car belonging to Go First airline went under a parked IndiGo A320 Neo aircraft, narrowly avoiding collision with the plane’s nose wheel.
Aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said that it is looking into the matter and an enquiry has been initiated into the incident which took place at stand number 201 of the airport’s T2 terminal.
“On August 2, IndiGo aircraft VT-ITJ was parked on stand no. 201, Terminal T-2 at IGI airport, Delhi. It was to operate IndiGo flight 6E-2022 (Delhi-Patna). A Go Ground car (Maruti Suzuki Dzire) vehicle came close to this aircraft and stopped under the nose area of the aircraft.
