Kingfisher pays delayed salaries


After a delay of nearly four months, many employees of the embattled Indian airline Kingfisher have been paid.

Chairman of the crisis-hit carrier, Vijay Mallya, admitted the salaries had been "seriously overdue", but that the problem had arisen in the first place because the Indian tax authorities had frozen the company's accounts.

Kingfisher has been in financial trouble for some time. At one stage it was India's largest airline by passenger numbers, but is now weathering money troubles, losing on average $1m (£628,000) per day.
