Mumbai, Tuesday, 20 July 2010: Kingfisher Airlines update - With effect from midnight today, the check-in counters for all domestic flights of Kingfisher Airlines departing from the 6 cities of Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Hyderabad & Chennai will now close 40 minutes before departure. This effectively means that our check-in counters will close 10 minutes earlier than they used to.
Further, the boarding gates for our domestic flights departing from all the above 6 airports will close 15 minutes before the time of departure.
It is therefore imperative that that all guests arrive at the airport well in time to check-in, proceed for security checks and arrive at their boarding gate in time. All our guests are being notified immediately of this change via sms messages from our call centres and via e-mails, including via our travel trade partners.
This change has been necessitated to minimize operational disruptions / guest inconvenience while ensuring compliance with the directions and procedures specified in Air Transport Circular 10 of 2009 issued by the DGCA and which is being implemented by DGCA now.
