Kingfisher to close its check-in counters 40-mins prior to dep
Mumbai: In conformity with civil aviation
regulator DGCA`s guidelines on reducing flight delay, private
carrier Kingfisher Airlines will close its check-in counters
for domestic flights 40 minutes prior to departure.
With effect from midnight today, the check-in counters
for all domestic flights of Kingfisher Airlines departing from
six cities -- Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad
and Bangalore -- will close 40 minutes before departure,
an airline statement said here today.
Besides, the boarding gates for the airline`s domestic
flights departing at all these airports will close 15 minutes
before the time of departure, it said.
Earlier, the airline was closing its check-in counters 30
minutes prior to the scheduled departure of its flights.
This change has been necessitated to minimise operational
disruptions/passenger inconvenience while ensuring compliance
with the directions and procedures laid down by DGCA, it said.
The DGCA had in October last year issued an Air Transport
Circular to all stakeholders, directing them to follow certain
procedures on boarding and aircraft push-back.
