Kingfisher to join domestic BSP, go online with GDS by next month

Mumbai: Kingfisher Airlines, in a bid to widen its sales distribution network and pave the way for international operations, has indicated that it will join the recently-instituted domestic Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP), and will also make its online debut with a GDS in April this year. The domestic BSP programme, which was formalised in December last year, following a long pilot project with select agents, has been extended to include all IATA agents, while non-IATA agents have till October to seek accreditation.
Kingfisher, which currently has a fleet of 11 aircraft and a total of 70 flights daily, will be the first non-legacy carrier in the country to join the domestic BSP. Sunil Chopra, head of IATA, India believes that Kingfisher's induction to the domestic BSP programme, which currently has Air India, Indian, Jet Airways and Air Sahara as members, will strengthen the alliance and compel the LCCs to eventually join.
