Air India must uplift its safety culture to the highest level because what was once considered "acceptable" is no longer so, the airline's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Managing Director (MD), Campbell Wilson said on Friday.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) suspended the airline's Chief of Flight Safety, Rajeev Gupta, for one month on Thursday after the regulator uncovered multiple lapses during a surveillance carried out in July.

The DGCA also instructed the airline not to assign any internal audits to the airline employees who conducted an internal audit in a “perfunctory” manner.
