NEW DELHI, Oct 5 (Reuters) - India's aviation regulator is
seeking legal opinion on cancelling the license of beleaguered
carrier Kingfisher Airlines, which has grounded its
fleet since Monday, the civil aviation minister, Ajit Singh,
said on Friday.
The airline controlled by liquor baron Vijay Mallya is
seven months behind on salary payments to employees and has
never turned a profit since its launch in 2005.
"Whether (aviation regulator) can suspend the license or
not, we will not allow Kingfisher to fly unless they meet the
concerns that the DGCA has on safety and on the ability to
maintain their operations," the minister told ET Now television
