GoAir, India’s most trusted brand, welcomes the re-opening of Indian skies by resuming its domestic flight operations from June 1st.
The airline has filed and received approval for its modified schedule which is based on one third of its pre-COVID-19 approved summer 2020 network. This is in line with the calibrated ramp-up capacity allocation policy outlined by the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
GoAir is ready and prepared to resume safe operations after the two month lockdown and to welcome all 6700 members of the GoAir family who are eager to fly again, the airline reported.
GoAir awaits clarity on the readiness of the respective states and their airports with regard to acceptance of flights, or the conditions applicable to passengers entering the respective states.
The airline further stated that without clarity on these conditions they do not wish to inconvenience its passengers by putting on sale flights immediately post the 25th of May which they may book, that will not be permitted to operate to the respective states or may have conditions for arriving passengers of which they may be unaware. On receiving clarity GoAir will open its site for bookings post the 25th of May upto the 31st of May to when and where appropriate.
GoAir tickets have already been on sale for its entire network of flights commencing the 1st of June and announced that they appreciate the initial customer response which has been very positive.
The airline is also fully prepared and equipped to execute the COVID-19 specific health and safety procedures outlined by the DGCA for the Indian aviation industry.
“We express our deep gratitude to our staff, crew, customers, travel agents and all the business partners who have supported the us during the lockdown,” a statement by the airline read. “GoAir looks forward to welcoming our customers on board very soon.”
