“A reasonable case exists for withdrawal of their (Kingfisher’s) airline operator permit as their financial stress is likely to impinge on safety,” Kingfisher released the report.

Calling a prima facie case regarding AI Express, it said it exists for restricting their operations in view of safety issues.

The report also revealed the fact that DGCA have rapped IndiGo for suppressing information on aircraft incidents that do not cause major damage to aircraft or lead to injury or fatality.
