Much trouble seems to be in store of the beleaguered Airline as Mumbai International Airport (MIAL) has handed out six of the 11 slots Kingfisher holds to Indigo. Further, according to a report, MIAL may also allot remaining slots to other carriers in due course of time. However, if all airport slots are given away to other airlines, it will be difficult for the defunct carrier to resume flights once its revival plan is given green signal by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
Besides, even the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has warned KFA that it will start taking away space allotted to it across airports if the latter fails to submit a concrete revival plan by mid-January.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) suspended airlines operating license on October 20 and asked to submit a concrete and viable revival plan ensuring safe, reliable, efficient and sustainable operations. As per the DGCA regulations Kingfisher can renew its license within two years.
