Low-cost carrier GoJet failed to include some of its staff in its drug and alcohol testing pool and should pay a civil penalty of $142,750, according to the FAA.

Low-cost carrier GoJet failed to include some of its staff in its drug and alcohol testing pool and should pay a civil penalty of $142,750, according to the FAA.

In proposing the penalty, the regulator states that an inspection of GoJet’s antidrug and alcohol misuse prevention programme in December 2013 found that six staff who performed “safety-sensitive” jobs had not been included in the LCC’s random testing pool, as required under US law.

It also alleges that a further two employees who had been selected for tests were not tested properly.

Missouri-based GoJet launched operations in 2002 and operates a fleet of 47 CRJ700s providing services for United Airlines and Delta Air Lines.
