We’re sorry to say that all Go First flights until August 31, 2023 are canceled because of operational issues. We are sorry for the trouble that the flight cancellations have caused. “We understand that the flight cancellations may have ruined your travel plans and we promise to help you as much as we can,” Go First mentioned in their statement.
Earlier on May 2, Go First had to cancel its flights and declared that it could not pay its debts and was no longer able to continue operating. They filed for bankruptcy with a court called the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT). They claimed that a company called Pratt and Whitney, which makes engines in the United States, was responsible for the delays that caused Go First to be unable to meet its obligations on time. Because of these delays, a part of Go First’s fleet of airplanes had to be taken out of service.
The DGCA has given permission for the airline to start flying again, but with some conditions. The DGCA said that Go First can start flying again as long as they can get enough money to cover their costs and the regulator approves their flight plan. The government gave permission for 15 planes to fly and for there to be 114 flights each day.
The airline has around 4,200 workers, and it made a total of Rs 4,183 crore from its operations in the financial year 2021-22.
