Dr Vijay Malya, Chairman of Kingfisher Airlines

The Kingfisher Airlines, country’s fast growing private airlines will be starting its Aviation University at Nerul, the outskirts of Mumbai by the end of 2008.

This was disclosed by Dr Vijay Mallya, Chairman and CEO of Kingfisher Airlines while inaugurating the new Kingfisher training institute in Mumbai recently.

Mallya said, his company will be investing more than Rs 200 crore in this new university. The aviation university will house the latest technology in flight training, including simulator and other areas of specifications.

Today, India needs more skilled manpower to cater to the domestic needs, as due to unskilled man power we have to train them again and these cause us monetary losses. The flying schools such as Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi in Rai Bareli and other institutes in Baramati and Gondia are not sufficient to meet the demands of the domestic aviation industry.

Speaking on the ticket fares, he said, today, many airlines have dropped the ticket fares, especially one, without naming it.

“We have maintained our deals, but other have not, hopefully we see a good scope for our company in future. Demand for better quality and service is on our side and I see Aviation has a great future,” Mallya stressed.
