Panel Requests Centre To Change 'GAY' Code To 'YAG' For Gaya Airport: Bihar
The 'GAY' code for Gaya airport is inappropriate, claimed a Parliamentary panel. The IATA code 'GAY' has been in usage since the Gaya airport's operationalisation. The parliament asked to change the code name to 'YAG', saying 'GAY' name is inappropriate, unsuitable, offensive as Gaya is a holy city. Meanwhile, Union Aviation Ministry said, the IATA which gives code names denied to change unless code concerns air safety.
