New Delhi: Kingfisher Airlines expects to resume operations in four or five days after about 100 pilots and engineers in Delhi had agreed to return to work, an executive with the ailing airline said on Thursday.

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.
