New Delhi: IndiGo, India's only profitable airline, saw no impact on its fleet expansion plans from the safety concerns raised by the civil aviation regulator, President Aditya Ghosh told reporters on Tuesday.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had said it plans to review the massive fleet expansion plans of IndiGo, after a safety audit found a shortage of trained staff and alleged operational discrepancies.

The report by the DGCA has pulled up almost every Indian airline for a shortage of instructors and slower training of both pilots and cabin crew.
