Mumbai, Apr 3: Kingfisher chairman Vijay Mallya on Tuesday, Apr 3, warned the pilots and engineers of the ailing airlines that the continuation of disrupted services will lead to cancelling of Kingfisher's flying permit by aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
After the meeting, the pilots and engineers have decided to withdraw the agitation from Wednesday, Apr 4.
"The employees accepted the assurance Mallya had given in his letter and decided that they would not go ahead with their ultimatum of an agitation if a part of their dues were not paid by 8 pm today," as claimed by airline sources.
On Monday, Apr 3, Kingfisher Chairman Vijay Mallya announced to pay the salaries of Kingfisher pilots and engineers by Apr 9 and 10. While, the junior staff is likely to receive the salary before Easter.
The staff wrote a letter to Mallya and stated that they felt cheated and deceived by the authority. They claimed that they were not in a proper state of mind, working in such a state would pose a threat for the safety of the passengers.
