GoAir to start 28 additional flights from Friday, including 8 from Mumbai
Budget carrier GoAir on Wednesday said it will operate 28 additional flights from Friday, in a likely bid to fill the void caused by the temporary grounding of Jet Airways.
“This summer, effective 26th April 2019, passengers can ‘Go-For-More’ with enhanced connectivity amongst 12 destinations,” the airline said in a statement.
The destinations include Mumbai (8 flights), Delhi (7), Nagpur (3), Ahmedabad (2), Goa (1), Chandigarh (1), Ranchi (1), Jaipur (1), Lucknow (1), Patna (1), Pune (1) and Kochi (1).
“These 28 additional flights cover the length and breadth of the country and thus it will immediately alleviate the shortage of flights and inconvenience caused to passengers due to the Jet Airway’s flight cancellations,” it added.
In a similar announcement last week, SpiceJet said it would dry lease six more Boeing 737 planes and roll out 24 daily new flights connecting Mumbai and Delhi, among others, to cater to passenger demands.
