The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has ordered Kingfisher Airlines to stop selling tickets.
The move comes after the airline resumed ticket sales for flights starting this weekend. The DGCA has served a show cause notice to the airline asking it to state by 20 October why it believes its license should not be cancelled.
India’s Civil Aviation Minister, Ajit Singh told reporters in New Delhi today (09 Oct) that Kingfisher will not be allowed to sell tickets until the regulator is satisfied with its operational viability, reported The Wall Street Journal. The airline had suspended complete flight operations early last week after pilots, technicians and engineers went on strike to protest against late payment of salaries.
