IndiGo, Air Deccan planes were 15 sec & 700 ft away from crash
 
(KOLKATA, May 11, 2018):Two planes, one that took off from Kolkata and another that was heading to the city, came "dangerously close" to each other near the India-Bangladesh border on May 2. The Aircraft Investigation Bureau under the civil aviation ministry is probing the incident of "airprox".

Agartala-bound IndiGo flight 6E 892, which took off from Kolkata, was beginning its descent after flying for 40 minutes when the traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS; that warns pilots when another aircraft is too close to it) in the cockpit went off. The plane at the other end was a non-scheduled flight operated by Air Deccan. The plane, an 18-seater Beechcraft 1900 D that is smaller than IndiGo's 180-seater Airbus A320 aircraft, had taken off from Agartala and was still ascending when the warning was signalled.

Officials said the flights were barely 15-35 seconds away from each other, which triggered a resolution advisory (an in-built feature in the TCAS). The minimum vertical distance between two flights operating in Indian airspace is 1,000 feet. The two flights had come within 700 feet of each other.

"IndiGo flight 6E-892 operated by VT-IDQ aircraft was involved in an RA (resolution advisory) incident with a non-scheduled operator on May 2 while descending for landing at Agartala. The Indi-Go aircraft was at the prescribed air level. The IndiGo pilot followed the standard operating procedures (SOPs) and reported the matter to Agartala ATC and the company. The matter has been reported to the regulator and is being investigated," an airline spokesperson said.

An Air Deccan safety official also acknowledged the incident and said it was being investigated.

Officials at Kolkata air traffic control (ATC), however, said that they were unaware of the incident though Agartala ATC is under Kolkata flight information region.
