Mallya moves to get Kingfisher fly to US

Liquor baron-turned-aviator Vijay Mallya has appointed a law firm in US to seek regulatory clearances and get his Kingfisher Airline brand soaring in the American skies. The law firm has been given the mandate to negotiate with US authorities to enable his American venture Kingfisher International to start direct flights from US to India.

“It’s a reputed law firm in US and it’s talking to the US department of transportation and Federal Aviation Authority for licences to operate flights from US to India,” Mallya said.

Mallya had floated an airline company in US after India refused to relax norms that restricted domestic airlines from flying abroad without a five-year domestic track record. “If India will not allow me to take Kingfisher Airlines international, then I will fly into India from US. I have already started the process of seeking necessary regulatory approvals in US,” he said.
