Kingfisher Airlines takes delivery of first Indian based A321s
15 November 2006

India's Kingfisher Airlines, the carrier headquartered in Mumbai, has taken delivery of four A321 single aisled aircraft. Their first A321 was delivered in late October 2006, in Hamburg, Germany. The deliveries make Kingfisher Airlines the A321s launch operator for an Indian based carrier.

All the aircraft are powered by International Aero Engines.

So far Kingfisher has ordered a total of 43 A320 Family aircraft. Originally, Kingfisher had ordered four A320s in 2004, but this order was amended in 2006 to four of the larger A321 aircraft.

Dr Vijay Mallya, Chairman of Kingfisher Airline's parent company UB Group, said "We are delighted to have the opportunity of expanding our relationship with Airbus who have been excellent business partners. Kingfisher will be the first airline to introduce the Airbus A321 aircraft in India. Given our growth and market share that we have achieved, I look forward to doing more business with fine partners such as Airbus."

Aviation Is A Passion.

You are 100 times more likely to catch a cold on a flight than an average person!
