The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), on Tuesday, asked the beleaguered Kingfisher Airlines to stop booking tickets immediately, following reports that the airline planned to resume normal operations from October 13.

“We have sent a notice to the airline to stop bookings. The DGCA is still to get a reply from the Kingfisher Airlines management on the various issues, including safety and certification for air operations. Till a clearance is granted by the DGCA, the airline cannot resume normal operations and start selling tickets,’’ a senior DGCA official said here. Soon after Kingfisher extended its lockout till October 12, travel agents said ticket sale had resumed for flights starting this weekend.
