resume services

The Kingfisher Airlines has decided to resume its flight operations in the Chennai-Salem-Chennai sector from the first week of April.

According to K. Mariappan, president of Salem District Small Scale and Tiny Industries Association, the general public and various forums had urged the management of the Kingfisher Airlines to resume the flight services, which it cancelled without citing any reasons in November, 2010 after 12 months of operation.

Mr. Mariappan said that senior officials from Kingfisher Airlines had informed him on Wednesday that the airlines had taken steps to resume the operations from the first week of April. The fliers' request to operate the flights in morning was under the consideration and the possibilities “are being explored.” Bookings would likely commence from March 20, he added.
