In a jolt for stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra, who has already been banned by several airlines from travelling on their airplanes, full service carrier Vistara has barred him from taking its flights till 27 April, reports Economic Times.

The ban has come into effect immediately on the basis of the internal committee of IndiGo finding him guilty of misbehaviour on a flight in air in accordance with the regulations enshrined in the Civil Aviation Requirements (CARs).

IndiGo had announced a ban on Kamra for a span of six months on 28 January after he had engaged into heckling a TV news anchor. Later, the ban was reduced to a period of three months. IndiGo's decision was supported by fellow carriers Air India, Spicejet and GoAir which had also banned Kamra from flying on their aircrafts for misbehaviour.

Soon after IndiGo's decision, Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri had taken to Twitter to assert, "Offensive behaviour designed to provoke & create disturbance inside an aircraft is absolutely unacceptable & endangers safety of air travellers."
