GoAir to commence 12 flight operations from October 5; Check new routes
"The launch of 12 new flights is in continuation with GoAir`s aggressive expansion plans. There are 6 new flights and another 6 flights are frequency additions on our existing Kolkata-Guwahati and Chandigarh-Ahmedabad sectors," said GoAir Managing Director Jeh Wadia.
Budget airline GoAir has said that it will commence 12 flight operations from October 5. The new flights will start between Delhi-Chandigarh, Lucknow-Ahmedabad and Kolkata-Lucknow, and the airline will also increase frequencies between its existing routes such as Kolkata-Guwahati and Ahmedabad-Chandigarh.
Issuing a statement on Tuesday, GoAir Managing Director Jeh Wadia said, "The launch of 12 new flights is in continuation with GoAir`s aggressive expansion plans. There are 6 new flights and another 6 flights are frequency additions on our existing Kolkata-Guwahati and Chandigarh-Ahmedabad sectors."
Jeh Wadia was quoted as saying, "The new flights between Ahmedabad and Lucknow will cater to the strong trade relations and the presence of a large number of SMEs. GoAir has already connected Lucknow to Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and the new flight to Kolkata is in sync with the company`s vision to connect Lucknow to India`s metro cities."
Currently, GoAir operates 330 daily flights, and flies to 24 domestic destinations and seven international ones.
Notably, GoAir has also tested TaxiBot - a semi-robotic pilot-operated tow vehicle - at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi. TaxiBots would be used as a tool to reduce fuel combustion as well as noise pollution. In the conventional system, the airline pilot switches on the engine to take the plane from parking bay to the runway.
On using TaxiBot, GoAir stated, "In future, the pilots will use TaxiBots to transport GoAir aircraft to the runway without switching the engine on," adding "GoAir is hopeful that TaxiBots will also ensure faster turnaround and result in better on-time-performance."
