GoAir is a leading carrier of India, operating under the aviation foray of the Wadia Group. It is one of the largest service providers in the country, and has recorded significant growth since its inception. The flawless services offered by this airline have been recognised by various industry watchers. As per recent reports, they are going to be expanded in the coming winter. When all other airlines are cutting off their operations, the largest carrier – IndiGo – and GoAir are adding number of flights to different destinations. Apart from capacity addition, it has announced the commencement of operations in Odisha. Travellers can make online flight booking to Biju Patnaik Airport as the option has already been added in the list. This Wadia Group-owned airline not only provides unmatchable services, but also gives best value for the money of passengers.
The low-cost carrier (LCC) operates most of its flights from Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi and Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai. With a fleet size of around 20 aircraft, it serves more than 20 destinations of the country. It has placed an order for over 70 A320 Neo from Airbus, whose worth has been evaluated at around INR 324 billion. Deliveries of these models will start in 2015, and the LCC is planning to commence international operations in the same year. It is expected that GoAir flight booking will see an upsurge after commencement of new operations. These plans are to be executed after six months, but the recent addition of flights will also impact the financial books of the company.
As per reports, this Mumbai-based airline will increase weekly departures by over 12 per cent, and the number of flights has been estimated to be 957. On the other hand, IndiGo is making an addition of around 25 per cent as it will receive models from Tiger Air. The Malaysia-based carrier, AirAsia, will also be adding winter flights, followed by Air Costa and yet to be launched Vistara. Because of stiff competition in the market and introduction of new service providers, prices are expected to be in check. The new schedule has already been approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), after a thorough analysis.
