IATA In Talks To Reinstate Kingfisher
Published: March 15, 2012
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is in talks to reinstate Kingfisher Airlines into its account settlement systems, after suspending the Indian carrier last week due to non-payment of fees, a senior official at the industry group said.
The action to suspend Kingfisher was not unprecedented, Tony Tyler, director general of IATA, told reporters.
He also said 2012 is not going to be any easier for Indian airlines due to higher taxation, higher airport charges and infrastructure constraints.
