Go First Flights cancellation: Overview

The business had submitted an application for immediate resolution and resumption of operations, according to the letter. Go First had previously announced that scheduled flight operations would continue to be cancelled until June 19. The airline filed for voluntary insolvency at the beginning of May, and since then, its operations have continued to stall.

Submitting a revival plan earlier this month to the DGCA, Go First had stated that it would resume operations with 152 daily flights, 4 reserves and a fleet of 26 aircraft, 22 of which would be in use. The airline, which recently changed its name to Go First, owns 6.4% of the Indian aviation market. Go First is said to still have more than 500 pilots, which is enough to fly 30 planes, and it doesn't need to hire any more pilots immediately despite recent losses.
