According to India Aviation, the two airlines were supposed to be fully integrated as of April 1, 2008. Can someone her confirm that this did indeed happen as planned?

I don't think it has happened as yet. Still tying up "loose ends" and basically figuring out the "winning formula" to ensure that Kingfisher's 345s are allowed to fly BLR-SFO on schedule.

Nothing is close to being completed. Kingfisher wants to retain two brands, but has been told by the government that they will need two AOC's (like 9W and S2) for that. Which leaves them with a problem, because they want Deccan's international rights so the Kingfisher AIOC will have to be surrendered, but if Deccan is rebranded they lose the massive investment in 'Simplify Deccan'. So will they have a sub-brand, no-one quite knows!

AFAIK, they have been in bed together for a long time now, so the consummation happened way before the wedding, lol. It was a shotgun wedding though!!!

I was thinking more of the operational aspects of the merger. Bringing the two airline ops together under one operating certificate was deemed to be a prerequisite for the launch of international service by Kingfisher later this year (before actually reaching the five year wait requirement for flag carrier certification). If this has not happened yet, then Kingfisher still lacks the authority to offer international flights, which are supposed to begin in the the second half of 2008.

Here is the link to the article I was referring to.

I believe this has happened with the onset of IATA summer '08 schedules..but they are are having hard time with civil aviation ministry as to international rights . It seems that every time they comply for an objection raised by MoCA they come up with new one... this almost seems like MoCA is hell bent on not approving IT/DN application.

This being India you never know what/who is behind this...but i could be wrong!
