Kingfisher Airlines (Bangalore and Mumbai) today (October 20) lost its ability to resume operations when the DGCA suspended its Air Operators Certificate (AOC) due to the airlines’ failure to respond to the orders issued by DGCA. The carrier suspended operations on October 4 due to employee unrest and strikes.
Yesterday the airline posted this notice on its website:
Kingfisher Airlines Ltd. has extended the partial lockout until October 23, 2012. We had a positive meeting with employee representatives on October 17th and are hopeful of reaching common ground when we meet again next week. Currently, we anticipate resuming operations on November 6th, subject to our resumption plan being reviewed and approved by the DGCA.
