As part of the government’s initiative to do away with archaic and irrelevant regulations, passengers have been allowed to take photographs from inside an air-borne aircraft.
“The regulations, for some strange reason, have been preventing individuals from taking photographs inside the airport complex, on the apron area and inside the aircraft,” an official said.
“We have already permitted photography inside the terminal buildings. After detailed discussions with the defence ministry, we have now agreed to allow bonafide passengers travelling in a scheduled airline to take photographs from inside the aircraft while in flight and while landing, take-off and on ground at civil aerodromes,” the official said.
“There is no stretch in this country that has not been mapped aerially and is not available on the Net. So, why should we stop individuals from photographing the area under the garb of security concerns?” the official said. Most countries across the world today allow passengers to take photographs inside the airport terminal buildings and even inside air-borne flights.
