IATA agents in India file contempt of court motion
 

Anand & Madhura Katti, Mumbai (2010-01-21)

THE IATA Agents Associations of India (IAAI) on February 8 filed a contempt of court motion against India's Ministry of Civil Aviation (MCA), Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and the 16 airlines which moved to zero commissions.

IAAI president Biji Eapen said the proceedings were filed because the parties involved did not follow the Kerala High Court July 13, 2009 directive for the DGCA to resolve the issue of airlines paying zero commissions.

Meetings between the DGCA, MCA, airlines and travel trade associations have not brought about any conclusion to the matter.

Eapen said: “(We were) hoping to settle the matter amicably. The IAAI did not take any pre-emptive action previously and had decided to allow the government enough time to settle the issue. No action has been taken so far and hence we had to file this case in the interest of the travel fraternity of India.”
