NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Debt-laden Kingfisher Airlines will keep its flights grounded until October 20, the carrier, owned by billionaire Vijay Mallya, said on Friday.

Kingfisher, once India's second-biggest airline, grounded its flights since the start of the month after an employee protest turned violent.

Last week, India's aviation regulator sent a "show-cause" notice to Kingfisher asking why its licence to fly should not be cancelled after failing to provide a "safe, efficient and reliable service."
