MAP: Kingfisher to drop service to 13 destinations, cut 20+ routes

Apparently the fallout from Kingfisher’s sudden cancellation of flights a couple of weeks ago has not yet ended. A report from airlineroute.net shows that Kingfisher may be cancelling a few additional domestic flights.

The following destinations will be cancelled outright; some of these were not currently operated but rather placed into the GDS.

Destinations are spread out across India, but without exception are in most cases Tier 2 and 3 cities (with the exception of maybe Nagpur.

Additionally, the following 22 routes have been cancelled.

The cancellations are really targeted towards Mumbai. Perhaps this is recognition that for Kingfisher and their cost level, many of these Tier 2 cities will not work? On the other hand, if Kingfisher gets its equity infusion, then some of these routes could come back, especially for connectivity purposes in Mumbai.
