Kingfisher: “Demand continues to be robust in current year backed by strong macro-economic environment and growth in most industry sectors. Domestic capacity expansion is expected to remain lower than growth in demand; resulting in continued increase in industry load factors in FY2012. Yields are expected to remain stable. Given the demand/supply situation, airlines have been able to partially offset the fuel price hike with fuel surcharge in the ticket prices,” Company statement.
