The civil aviation ministry told the airline on May 6 that the Union home ministry had granted the carrier security clearance.

The letter, which has been accessed by PTI, said, it is “directed to refer to your application to convey security clearance for change in shareholding pattern of the company/firm, for scheduled operator permit, on the basis of security clearance received from the Ministry of Home Affairs”.

The test flight on Thursday was meant to demonstrate to aviation regulator DGCA that the aircraft and its components are in good working order.
