New Delhi:

The aviation regulator has sought an explanation from the airline after several incidents related to SpiceJet aircraft came to light.

Notably, the DGCA has issued a show-cause notice to SpiceJet after eight incidents of technical snag in the last 18 days.

After the notice received from the government, the reaction of SpiceJet chief Ajay Singh has come on this whole matter.

He told NDTV on Wednesday that such incidents are certainly worrying.

Security has declined due to poor maintenance.

Just a month ago, the regulator had reviewed every aircraft of his airline for safety.

It is the DGCA job to regulate us.

It has to show us that we are 100% safe.

I welcome their concern.
