Go First Flight Operations Suspended Until May 30, What is the Company’s Statement on Refunds?

Domestic airline company, Go First Flights, has announced that their flights will continue to remain suspended until May 30. The company shared this information through a tweet. It is worth noting that Go First was formerly known as Go Air. On May 2, Go First had filed for insolvency, leading to a two-day flight suspension.

Late last night, the company tweeted, “Due to operational reasons, GoFirst flights have been canceled till May 30, 2023. We apologize for the inconvenience.” The company has assured passengers that they will receive full refunds for their bookings, and the process will be initiated soon.

Recently, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the aviation regulator, requested Go First to submit a plan outlining their strategy for resuming operations. The plan must include details regarding aircraft availability and pilot resources. DGCA has provided Go First with a 30-day deadline to submit this plan.

In their tweet, the company also mentioned that they will resume bookings shortly. It is worth mentioning that the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) recently upheld the decision of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) regarding Go First.

This predicament for Go First arises at a time when the aviation sector is experiencing a resurgence, with the number of passengers surpassing pre-COVID levels.
