India’s GoAir stands ready for domestic flights take off
Since the Indian government has announced relaxing ban on domestic flights in the country, effective May 25, GoAir has filed and received approval for its modified schedule which is based on one third of its pre-covid approved summer 2020 network.
This is in line with the calibrated ramp-up capacity allocation policy outlined by the Ministry of Civil Aviation. GoAir announced that it is ready and prepared to resume safe operations after the two month lockdown.
As many states in India have established distinct rules against the resumption of domestic flights initiated by the central government, 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.
Without clarity on these conditions, GoAir does 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.
The airline has already been on sale for its entire network of flights commencing the June 1 and has been seen a positive response so far. The airline announced that it is fully prepared and equipped to execute the COVID-specific health and safety procedures outlined by the DGCA for the India aviation industry.
