MIAL has already served two notices to Kingfisher demanding clearance of dues totalling Rs.53 crore.

"Until the long-pending dues are cleared, we shall not let them fly these aircraft, which are in our control," an official.

The dues pertain to parking charges, navigation and other services offered by MIAL in the normal course of airlines operations.

KFA has been grounded since October 1 due to financial problems. Later that month, its flying licence was also suspended by the Directorate-General of Civil Aviation.
