Go First Airlines announced on Saturday that its flight operations will remain canceled until May 30, adding that a full refund will be issued to passengers.
Go First Airlines’ official media account took to Twitter and said: “Due to operational reasons, Go First flights are canceled until May 30, 2023. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.”
“We regret to inform you that, for operational reasons, Go First flights scheduled through May 30, 2023 have been cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by flight cancellations,” it said.
“A full refund to the original mode of payment will be issued shortly,” the letter said.
“We recognize that flight cancellations could have disrupted your travel plans and we are committed to providing any assistance we can,” he said.
“As you know, the company has submitted a request for immediate resolution and reactivation of operations. We will be able to resume booking shortly. We appreciate your patience,” the letter added.
The General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics (DGCA) advised Go First Airlines on Wednesday to present a comprehensive restructuring plan for a sustainable reactivation of operations.
A senior DGCA official reported that Go First filed its response to a justification notice issued on May 8, requesting that they be allowed to use the moratorium period to prepare a comprehensive restructuring plan to restart operations and submit the same. to the DGCA for required regulatory approvals before restarting operations.
Consequently, the DGCA advised the airline on Wednesday to submit a comprehensive restructuring/reactivation plan for a sustainable reactivation of operations, within 30 days.
“The airline has been asked to provide, among other things, fleet readiness status of operational aircraft, required position holders, pilots and other staff, maintenance agreements, financing/working capital, agreements with landlords and suppliers, etc. for the sustainable reactivation of operations,” said the official.
The reactivation plan, once presented by Go First, will be reviewed by the DGCA to take the appropriate measures on the matter, the official added.
