Another nail in the coffin for Kingfisher

Kingfisher Airlines has lost its international and domestic flying rights following a decision by the Indian government.

Following the move, rights will be handed to competitors, marking a further decline in the fortunes of the airline.

Loss-making Indian carrier Kingfisher saw rights to fly to eight countries, including the UK, withdrawn.

Up to 126 slots for international flights have been withdrawn, making approximately 25,000 seats a week available to other Indian carriers.

Its domestic slots have also been handed to its rival airlines.

Kingfisher’s whose licence to fly expired at the end of 2012.
