The Mumbai airport operator on Monday moved the Bombay high court seeking pending dues and attachment of properties belonging to grounded Kingfisher Airlines (KFA).


Sources said the Mumbai International Airport Limited (Mial), the GVK-led private consortium which operates the city airport, filed a summary suit over pending dues worth approximately Rs. 35 crore. A summary suit is filed for speedier recovery of funds when the defendant does not dispute default of payments.

“The airline has not cleared bills worth Rs. 18 crore as landing and parking fees, and Rs. 17 crore in passenger service fees,” said an airport official.

Sources said the assets proposed for attachment comprise four Kingfisher aircraft parked at the city airport, since the airline does not possess any other properties in the airport’s premises. The court has asked the airline to reply within two weeks.

A KFA spokesperson refused to comment.
