Kolkata: A mid-air collision was avoided between two IndiGo flights that took off from Bengaluru airport after a radar controller saw the approaching danger and took corrective actions, aviation regular Directorate General of Civil Aviation’s (DGCA) preliminary report has said.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) didn’t report the “breach of separation”, sources quoted a preliminary report by the DGCA as saying by NDTV. “Breach of separation” takes place when two aircraft cross the minimum mandatory vertical or horizontal distance in airspace, reported the website.

Two IndiGo flights — 6E 455 (Bengaluru to Kolkata) and 6E 246 (Bengaluru to Bhubaneswar) were the aircraft involved in the scare, NDTV’s sources said. Both aircraft were variants of the Airbus A320.

“As both aircraft after departure were on converging heading i.e. moving towards each other, an approach radar controller gave diverging heading and avoided a mid-air collision,” said the report.
