Kingfisher Airlines India’s fastest growing airline and the winner of the “New Airline of the Year 2005” Award in the Asia Pacific and Middle East region, announced its new service to keep its guests updated even while they are on the move. King Mobile is a unique service, which enables a guest to get the latest flight information on his or her cell phone simply using the SMS function.



By using the King Mobile service a guest can get information on Schedules, flight status and Guest assistance numbers in various cities and flight schedule alerts instantly.



Adds Mr. Girish Shah, General Manager Marketing, Kingfisher Airlines Ltd., “The service comes in at a very appropriate time as, in the months of December and January; the northern and eastern regions of the Indian subcontinent are subject to a very high degree of fog which hampers visibility and movement. The same has an adverse effect on all aircraft movement in these regions, which in turn has a spill over effect on airline schedules across India. Hence it is imperative for all airlines to derive an effective communication plan to minimize any instances of guest inconvenience. King Mobile service is a very effective tool to cater to Guest needs at such times.”



The airline currently operates 56 flights daily connecting 13 key Indian cities. Kingfisher Airlines is also the first Indian carrier to have placed an order for five Airbus super jumbo A380s along with five A350s and five A330s. The deliveries of A330s are expected to begin in 2007 while the A380s and A350s arrive in 2010 and 2012 respectively.
