The incident where an IndiGo plane was seen landing and an Air India aircraft taking off from the same runway in less than a minute at the Mumbai airport is now under the lens of India's aviation watchdog.

Soon after the said incident came into light, DGCA has derostered the Air Traffic Controller (ATC) who was on duty at the time of the incident on Saturday. Both airlines, IndiGo and Air India have initiated a probe into the matter.

A video of one plane landing and another taking off from the same runway has been shared on social media.
Response of DGCA and airlines on incident:

"We are conducting a probe and have already de-rostered the ATCO involved in the incident," the DGCA official said.

Mumbai airport is a single-runway operation with two crossing runways. On a single runway RW27 at the Mumbai airport, there are around 46 arrivals and departures per hour.

IndiGo said its aircraft continued the approach and landing as per the ATC instructions. "On June 8, IndiGo flight 6E 6053 from Indore was given landing clearance by ATC at Mumbai Airport. The Pilot in Command continued the approach and landing and followed ATC instructions," IndiGo said in a statement.
