February 1: Indian carrier Kingfisher Airlines announced it is to launch a same-day-delivery-by-air service for the country on February 2, called Kingfisher Xpress. It is claimed to be India’s first and only same-day service with a money-back guarantee.
The service will operate in the six main metropolitan cities of Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata with guaranteed same day delivery in 18 provincial centres. Existing short-haul aircraft in the Kingfisher fleet will be used, such as its ATR 72-500s.
