The End for Air Deccan
Air Deccan, which introduced the concept of low-cost flying in India, will cease to exist from next week and replaced by Kingfisher. The airline, which was taken over by Kingfisher, will stop using DN code for its flights, instead will start using the owner's IT code.This transition will happen even as Air India-Indian Airlines and Jet-Sahara (now JetLite) combines continue to use different codes for each airline. "We are going to be on a common platform," a Kingfisher official said when asked about the two codes. Under the common IT code and Kingfisher brand, the group will offer three distinct levels of service to passengers — economy and business class in the full service Kingfisher and an all economy section in the budget carrier.Kingfisher has been working on bringing the two airlines on a common platform for some time now as there were several complaints that a Deccan ticket being bought on Kingfisher website costs more than if it purchased on Deccan website.
