New Delhi/Mumbai, Oct 3 (IANS) The lockout at Kingfisher Airlines following a flash strike by its employees will not lead to a hike in air fares, airlines and aviation experts said.
"The reduction in seats by KFA had anyways been factored in by competing airlines during the last two quarters. So we do not expect across-the-board increase in fares," Amber Dubey, partner and head, aviation, at consulting firm KPMG told IANS.
Dubey said some flights where the airline was operating with its depleted fleet may be marginally impacted.
"The fare hikes may be restricted to the few routes that KFA was operating with its depleted fleet."
