Delhi: Kingfisher Airlines chairman Vijay Mallya will meet DGCA chief
EK Bharat Bhushan on Tuesday to explain his plans to revive the airline.
Ailing Kingfisher Airlines on Monday faced the prospects of its flying
license being cancelled and its boss Vijay Mallya has been asked by DGCA
to present a clear picture of the cash-strapped private carrier.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) mulled cancellation of
Kingfisher's flying permit after the airline on Monday submitted to it the
summer flight schedule with 15 to 16 aircraft as against 28 planes
submitted last month.
"The airline not only lacks aircraft, they also lack funds for day-to-day
operations. They are failing to meet their flight schedule, causing
inconvenience to the passengers and also they failed to give salaries to
their employees for past four-five months," official sources said.
