Bangalore, Sept 12 (UNI) Deccan Aviation is in talks with France-based SCE company to prepare an aerial map of the country, Deccan Aviation Executive Chairman G R Gopinath said today.

Talking to newspersons here, he said there would be more foreign investments in operation of helicopter service for geo-physical services in the country.

To a question, he said the Kingfisher Airlines' investment in Deccan Aviation had helped both the companies in many ways.

''The investment had helped bring into existence a common logistics manager for both Air Deccan and Kingfisher Airlines. The infrastructure of both the airlines would help improve efficiency and bring down the operational cost.'' The company was seriously considering a common brand, but would maintain its unique identity, he said.

Capt Gopinath said Air Deccan, after getting approval from the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), would operate smaller aircraft in South Asia, South East Asia and Kingfisher would fly to London and New York.

''We operate services to 60 cities every day. Now after Kingfisher joined the fleet, the number of services had increased,'' he said.

On the quantum of jump in revenue after the Kingfisher investment, he said ''It is very early to comment on it. But the benefit will be more and it will help both the companies.'' UNI
