Kingfisher Airlines to curtail overseas operations

March 14 (Reuters) - India's Kingfisher Airlines said it would curtail its overseas operations as the debt-laden carrier struggles with a cash crunch and mounting losses.

"We would like to confirm that we are curtailing our wide body overseas operations that are bleeding heavily," the airline said in a statement on Wednesday, adding that it had already returned one Airbus to its UK lessor as a result.

Kingfisher has been struggling to continue its normal operations as a heavy debt load, higher jet fuel costs, stiff competition and low fares severely hurt its ability to raise funds.
