New Delhi: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Monday and said that no Kingfisher Airlines flight was operating at present. Kingfisher cancelled flights due to pilots and engineers not reporting to work due to non payment of salaries. The airline in a statement said that it is taking all possible measures to lessen the impact of the employee strike.
The airline further said it would proactively cancel flights on Monday as it feared a number of its employees were unlikely to report for work due to threats from other workers. "A section of employees of KFA has not been reporting for work over the last fortnight and over the past two days, they have been threatening and even manhandling the other employees who are reporting for work," said Prakash Mirpuri, a Kingfisher spokesman.
Kingfisher Airlines operations in Mumbai and Delhi have been crippled as a section of airline engineers have gone on a flash strike. This over the non-payment of salaries since March. The shares of Kingfisher Airlines tumbled by about 5 per cent after the company said it was cancelling flights due to employee unrest.
