 Airlift (2016) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4387040/)  the film is a survival thriller rather action one. With a brief brawl scene does not count in Action genre. I request to data editors to look official BBFC page (http://www.bbfc.co.uk/releases/airlift-2016) and the genres are only Thriller and Drama.

What the BBFC page says about the genres is irrelevant for IMDb. IMDb has its own definitions of genres (you can find them here: https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/guide/genres) and those are used to determine whether or not a genre is attached to a certain title. Now I haven't seen Airlift, but if it contains "numerous scenes where action is spectacular and usually destructive." it should have the Action genre listed. If not, you can send a correction via the Edit Button at the bottom of the page and explain why it should be removed.

I had tried to remove the genre Action numerous times. Still someone adds it. Guidelines clearly says action scenes must contain destructive consequences. Argo and Airlift are same in storyline. Marco sir, i had been constantly edited it not an action film. What kind of service is this?

Hopefully a staffer, or someone who has seen Airlift, will respond to this thread to help you out. As I haven't seen this film, there's not much more I can add.

Hi Mohammad -

Looking at the title page for "Airlift" here, there is no "Action" genre listed.  Currently the only Genres we have listed for this title are: Adventure, Drama, History, Thriller, and War.

If any of the above listed Genres are incorrectly attributed to this title, you are welcome to submit a Genre deletion request through our online Update form and our staff will review them.

Thank you mam. As per now i had deleted. And mam, Airlift is, was and will not be an Action film. Further submissions shouldn't be added. I had explained it that the film is only a "survival thriller" with war-based historical background. And murder scenes, hostage scenes mustn't be counted in Action. I had therefore urged that Action must not and not be added in nearest future. Thank you once again for your kind help. Thats why i escalated here to get help so that unwanted genres must not be added to the page in future.
