What factors influenced Go First’s decision to resume flight operations starting May 27?

India Changes Airline Bankruptcy Rules, in wake of jet leasing dispute

Low-cost airline Go First is apparently intending to resume operations on May 27 after filing bankruptcy. The airline has sent out an internal message asking pilots to attend training sessions for an upcoming online ground training course commencing on Friday. Pilots who have not flown commercially since the airline’s suspension on May 3 are required to attend the sessions.

ET was informed by sources that Go First has developed a business strategy to resume operations with a fleet size reduction to 20 aircraft. Up to May 2, the airline ran 27 aircraft, and it has important departure slots at the airports of Mumbai and Delhi. Even while it is the goal to restore operations as soon as feasible, this will be done on a more progressive schedule.

Due to ongoing engine problems that make flight operations unprofitable, Go First already announced the cancellation of all flights until May 26.

Go First received a show cause notice from the DGCA on May 8 asking them to provide an explanation for why they were unable to conduct business within 15 days. As a result, the airline was prohibited by the aviation regulator from accepting new reservations, and ticket sales were ceased.

The airline, which has recently experienced considerable difficulties, could potentially make a comeback as a result of Go First’s resurrection efforts. The airline hopes to gradually regain stability with the help of the suggested procedures and rebuild its business so it can once more offer its clients air travel services.
