Citing the importance of the Kolkata airport, which is believed as one of the crucial junction between North-East India and other parts of the nation, Mr Bhushan claimed that Kingfisher Airlines has to restore the flight operations at the airport.

Meanwhile, the meeting between the DGCA and Kingfisher CEO brought some relief for the employees working with the airlines as DGCA chief informed that the airlines management will clear December salaries by Feb 2012.

After the two-hour meeting with DGCA officials, Mr Aggarwal claimed that the airlines has sufficient pilots and crews to operate its flights and he hoped to restore operations in next 5 to 7 days.
