Kingfisher airlines had the second largest share in India’s domestic air travel market. Kingfisher operates 250 daily flights with regional and long-haul international service. Kingfisher airlines also acquired Air Deccan and its name changed into Kingfisher Red. Kingfisher Red is Kingfisher Airlines low cost class on domestic routes. It introduces low cost airlines after acquiring Air Deccan. Kingfisher Airlines also won many awards and successfully achieved its goal in the last few years.
Kingfisher Airline is facing a financial crisis these days. Aviation Minister has given a last chance to Kingfisher and asked the cash strapped airline to at least run its truncated fleet of 28 airworthy aircraft properly with new timetable that has to be prepared by Wednesday. Even Air India and Jet Airways have put Kingfisher on cash and carry which means Kingfisher have to pay those airlines cash up front to accommodate stranded passengers.
DGCA chief Bharat Bhushan met KFA CEO Sanjay Aggarwal and executive Vice-President Hitesh Patel in New Delhi because airline is subjected to tough questioning on its slashing of flight since Saturday, which causes inconvenient to passengers, and they fail to satisfy DGCA authorities. DGCA also mount special safety check on Kingfisher aircraft in service. DGCA also send a report on the airline’s sorry state to aviation ministry, leaving a call on Kingfisher’s fate to it.
