Kingfisher will soon give revival plan to DGCA

Crisis-ridden Kingfisher Airlines on Tuesday said it is working on a comprehensive revival plan which will be given to aviation regulator DGCA in the next few weeks.

'We are working on a comprehensive plan which will address the interests of all stakeholders and this will be submitted to DGCA,' an airline spokesperson said when asked about their plans to get the suspension of its scheduled operator's permit (SOP), valid till this year-end, revoked.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had suspended Kingfisher's SOP on 19 October  till further orders after a lockout and its failure to come up with a viable plan of financial and operational revival. DGCA had said Kingfisher had failed to run a 'safe, efficient and reliable operations'.

The SOP suspension came after a lockout by the management on October one following an impasse with its employees who struck work from 30 September demanding payment of overdue salaries. The lockout was lifted on 25 October.

Airline sources said Kingfisher's plan is likely to be submitted to the DGCA in the next few weeks.
