Mumbai: A day after Air India lifted the flying ban imposed on Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad, private airlines followed suit on Sunday.

According to sources in the Federation of Indian Airlines (which comprises of four leading private carriers), the ban on Gaikwad was withdrawn after they were assured that their assets and colleagues would be respected.

Jet Airways, SpiceJet, GoAir and IndiGo make up the grouping whose decision came a day after Air India lifted the flying ban imposed on the Lok Sabha member.

"Consequent to Air India restoring flying privileges to Mr Ravindra Gaikwad after being satisfied with the statement given by the Member of Parliament, the FIA member airlines are also restoring the flying privileges to Mr Gaikwad under the assurance that our assets and colleagues shall be accorded the respect that they deserve for the hard work that they put in every day," the source said.

Jet Airways, SpiceJet, GoAir and IndiGo make up the grouping whose decision came a day after Air India lifted the flying ban imposed on the Lok Sabha member.

Air India had on Friday lifted the ban on Gaikwad after he apologised to the Civil Aviation Ministry for assaulting one of its employees on March 23.

Gaikwad, who arrived in Mumbai by train from Delhi on Saturday morning, would be meeting Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray later in the day.

Meanwhile, Uddhav Thackeray has evaded all sort of questions on Gaikwad while speaking to reporters outside Sena Bhavan.
