Go Air is expanding its international footprint with seven new routes. Starting from July 19, the Indian low-cost airline will operate flights on Mumbai – Abu Dhabi, Delhi – Abu Dhabi, Mumbai – Muscat, Delhi – Bangkok, Kannur – Dubai, Kannur – Kuwait and Mumbai – Bangkok sector (subject to approval).
Expressing his views on Go Air’s international expansion, Jeh Wadia, managing director, Go Air, said, “I am very pleased to announce these planned launches which will strengthen Go Air’s presence in the Middle East and South East Asian countries.
“The network expansion is in sync with our vision to expand out footprint in strategic markets and to grow our business profitably. This time we are entering new destinations – Kuwait, Dubai and Bangkok and we intend to continue the momentum in the near future.”
As stated above Bangkok, Dubai and Kuwait are the new additions to the airline’s international network, while other routes are already on its network albeit from different Indian cities. Go Air already flies to Abu Dhabi and Muscat from Kannur, and it flies to Phuket and Maldives from Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai.
In other news, Go Air has inducted 50th aircraft, thereby doubling its fleet in less than two years. “Going forward, on average, we will be adding at least one aircraft every month and that translates into more flights, more destinations and more smart options for the consumers,” said Wadia.
Currently, Go Air operates 270 daily flights connecting 24 domestic and four international destinations.
