Sanjay Bahadur, vice president of corporate affairs, also said the airline expects to pay salaries for March within a week.

Cash-and-debt-strapped Kingfisher, once India's second-largest airline, is half a year behind on salary payments and has grounded its fleet since Monday after a protest by engineers over the weekend turned violent, according to the airline.
