Vijay Mallya, chairman of the UB Group, has said that all scheduled flights of Kingfisher Airlines will operate normally with immediate effect a day after the airline cancelled almost 40 flights as pilots went on strike over wage non-payment.

Kingfisher Airlines' schedule was disrupted as its pilots struck work to protest non-payment of salaries for almost five months. 

As many as 18 flights scheduled from Bangalore were cancelled. In addition, 12 flights from Delhi and four from Mumbai were cancelled.

Earlier in its statement, the airline company said that certain flights across its network are cancelled after certain section of employees decided to stay away from duty due to salary payments not being credited to the bank accounts of all employees by Friday, July 13.

But the airline added that more than 75% of its employees have received their promised salaries and stated that the remainder of its employees will receive their wages by Monday July 16.

The airline has said that it will offer full co-operation to its customers in re-booking and refund.
