Kingfisher revival plan: Mallya meets Civil Aviation Secy

Ahead of submitting a revival plan to aviation regulator DGCA, Kingfisher Airlines chairman Vijay Mallya on Tuesday met civil aviation secretary K N Shrivastava and briefed him about the steps being taken to revive the beleaguered carrier.

Mallya is understood to have been asked by Shrivastava about the plans to pay off the debts and dues to various vendors, including Airports Authority of India (AAI) which has asked it to vacate two hangars at Kolkata and Chennai airports as it owes the state-run airports body Rs 293 crore.

'I have briefed him on revival and restart plan. It would be a comprehensive plan. All hurdles will be crossed,' Mallya told reporters after the meeting.

The meeting between UB Group chief and the secretary, the first since the airline got into regulatory trouble, lasted 30 minutes, official sources said.Kingfisher is expected to apply to the DGCA for revocation of suspension of its Scheduled Operator's Permit (SOP) or flying license in a few weeks.
