In fresh trouble for beleaguered Kingfisher Airlines, the Mumbai airport authorities may issue an eviction notice after the grounded carrier failed to respond to an earlier notice asking it to clear the Rs 22 crore dues towards parking and navigational charges.
The notice for clearing the dues, served 10 days ago, gave the airliner seven days time to make the payment but it has not yet responded, Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) sources said on Monday.
"We have yet to hear from Kingfisher Airlines on our notice. They were given seven days time to clear our dues and so far neither they have responded to the notice nor have made any payment," sources said speaking on condition of anonymity.
They said the airport operator may now slap an eviction notice on the cash-strapped airline and lease out the space to other carriers.
