New Delhi: The government on Monday decided to withdraw all International Bilateral Traffic Rights and domestic slots at airports given to Kingfisher Airlines citing their non-utilisation by the airline. The domestic slots and the rights will now be allocated to other airlines, the government directed.

The rights, which were allotted to Kingfisher between 2008 and 2011, allowed the airline to fly the sky of eight countries.

The new allocation of these rights to other airlines would give additional availability of approximately 25,000 seats per week, the government said. Meanwhile, Airports Authority of India has been directed to make Kingfisher's domestic slots available to other domestic carriers as per their demand.
