Kingfisher Airlines tells Airbus that it will take the deferred aircraft after all, but may cut jobs.

Kingfisher Airlines CEO, Vijay Mallya confirmed yesterday that: “There are several employees on our rolls whose presence in the organisation will be reviewed. We will look at some structural changes in a combination of jobs, (and) job profiles as well but without any mass, large-scale layoffs. We are looking to rationalise our human resources cost base,” he said.

But Mallya also said that Kingfisher was “not in the business of hiring and firing and generating unemployment”. He said Kingfisher planned to apply for more international flight routes to beat possible competition from SpiceJet and Indigo. “We are looking at obviously applying for more routes because now SpiceJet is eligible to fly overseas, Indigo will be eligible to fly overseas next year. Before they come in and grab additional bilateral rights, we want to make sure Kingfisher has already secured these rights.” Mallya also confirmed that with civil aviation staging a strong recovery, Kingfisher is reactivating orders and deliveries from Airbus from 2012.
