Kingfisher’s new International schedule

Further to all the noise about the grounding of Kingfisher’s fleet last weekend and further cutbacks in service, there is now an update from Kingfisher Airlines on the trimmed down schedule it is now operating. With the 28 aircraft the airline has kept in the air right now, they are expected to fly about 170 flights a day.

I’m breaking it into two parts and posting the international operations first.

  • London: 1 daily service from Delhi and Mumbai daily now on the A330.
  • Singapore: Mumbai – Singapore – Mumbai downgraded to A320 till March 24, back to A330 from March 25 onwards.
  • Dhaka: Kolkata (CCU) – Dhaka (DAC) – Kolkata (CCU) continues on the ATR-66.
  • Colombo: Operations only from Chennai (MAA) on the A320 and Trichy (TRZ) on the ATR-42.
  • Hong Kong: Mumbai (BOM) – Hong Kong (HKG) – Mumbai (BOM) continues daily on the A330, Delhi (DEL) – Hong Kong (HKG) – Delhi (HKG) operates 6 days a week, ex-Wednesday.
  • Kathmandu: Delhi (DEL) – Kathmandu (KTM) – Delhi (DEL) cancelled.
  • Bangkok: Calcutta (CCU) – Bangkok (BKK) – Calcutta (CCU) service on an A320, Delhi and Mumbai services withdrawn till March 31, 2012.
  • Dubai: 1 daily service from Mumbai (BOM), Delhi (DEL) and Bangalore (BLR) on A320.

This is the new schedule Kingfisher is flying as of 23rd February 2012, after a regulatory intervention forced them to make up their mind on flying their planes rather than just cancelling flights at will.

I will post another update about the domestic schedule, which will take some time to analyse, but is available here for your reference [PDF].

If you have any queries, feel free to drop me a comment or an email and I will be glad to help you to the extent possible.
