A Parliamentary panel on Friday objected to the Gaya airport code “GAY”, calling it inappropriate for the holy city in Bihar and said the Centre must get it changed, PTI reported.

The Union Civil Aviation ministry stated that the International Air Transport Association, which assigns codes for airports, has said it cannot be changed without a “justifiable reason primarily concerning air safety”.
