FKingfisher Airlines, which has been struggling in recent weeks, is awaiting approval of its new flight schedule. The new schedule is currently being vetted by the Airports Authority of India and then will just need approval by the aviation regulator DGCA, which should be given soon. DGCA chief EK Bharat Bhushan said that he hopes everything will be cleared by tomorrow. He also stated that the airline has already started operating in accordance with its new schedule.
The new schedule has Kingfisher operating at less than half of its previously planned number of flights for the winter season. In November the airline had requested to operate 418 flights daily with a fleet of 64 aircraft, but shortly after that ended up operating a mere 269 flights. They blamed this on major financial problems. The number of flights has fallen further, to 170. With the revised schedule, the airline will cease operating flights to some major cities and a number of Tier-II cities.
