Hello, everyone.

This is my first ever post on airlinersindia.

I'm currently making trip reports on my travels on youtube and while recently flying to Singapore from Kochi, I was caught for recording. The actual confrontation is included in my trip report here:

Skip to 2:01 for the actual confrontation.

I know that it is legal to film/photograph in civil airports in India. Yet, I am caught here. Am I obliged to listen to the security officer or is it okay to film? Are'n't jet bridges part of the airport?

Thanks in advance

The Jet bridge is on the apron & can be interpreted as a violation as apron photography is banned....A stupid rule .....wonder when it will be lifted.

Currently as a scheduled pax you can film from within the aircraft of inside & outside of the aircraft or in the terminal building except at defence aerodromes in the country.

BTW great video TR though Wink

Nice video report! Kochi surprises me - some friends even took pictures there on the apron at very close range art Nedumbassery!

People photograph all over varios airports in the country & on the tarmac too.....its just that some do it delibritly & others unknowingly.....Most times the CISF is not observing it.

As long as a rule is in place it needs to be respected,although it makes no sense........But until its revised.......

Thanks for replying guys! But, I'm not quite sure that this guard noticed me filming as I had my camera LCD off and held the camera at hip level.
I think he could have said it just as a general notion.

Another question I had was, if a flight attendant asks me to stop filming in the airplane for takeoff, will showing the DGCA document be of any use?

Thanks in advance

So, the FAA regulation for electronic devices to be switched off is overruled by the DGCA rule? Nice. But, only for domestic flights right?

Thanks
