Go Airlines (India) Ltd. is an aviation foray of the Wadia Group. It operates under the brand GoAir. In November 2005, GoAir launched its operations as a low-fare carrier to commoditize air travel and offer airline seats at a marginal premium to train fares across India. The airline currently operates over 230 daily flights and approximately 1600 weekly flights across 28 destinations – 24 domestic and 4 international.
The GoAir route network spans across prominent business metros as well as key leisure destinations across the Indian subcontinent. GoAir currently renders its services at the airports in Ahmedabad, Bagdogra, Bengaluru, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Jammu, Kochi, Kolkata, Kannur, Leh, Lucknow, Mumbai, Nagpur, Patna, Port Blair, Pune, Ranchi, Srinagar, Phuket, Malé and Muscat. Through this route network GoAir ensures a smart value-for-money option for both business and leisure travellers, without compromising on either safety or service factors.
GoAir’s distribution network has been well-researched. Following a thorough evaluation of the available mediums, the airline has introduced a gamut of options, specially designed to make tickets very accessible to its passengers. GoAir hosts convenient online booking options on its website www.GoAir.in wherein a passenger or his associate can book GoAir tickets anytime round the clock, 365 days a year from the comfort of their home. For those passengers who do not have a credit or a debit card or access to a web networked computer, tickets can be booked from other distribution mediums including Travel Agents or via GoAir’s Call Centres. Tickets can also be booked from GoAir airport counters.
GoAir is positioned as ‘the Smart People’s Airline’. Its captivating theme, ‘Fly Smart’ is aimed at offering passengers a consistent, quality-assured, and time-efficient service through ‘pocket-friendly’ fares. The airline uses a state-of-the-art Airbus A320 aircraft fleet.
GoAir executes its business model on the basic three-tier principle – ‘punctuality, affordability, and convenience’. The airline has recently partnered with Navitaire, a leading technology provider of automated aviation and travel-related software solutions, for its Passenger Service System . By adopting such technology solutions, GoAir is equipped with superior process efficiency, thereby enabling its passengers to save great amount of time.
Adding a milestone to its journey, in October 2016, GoAir passed the International Air Transport Association’s Operational Safety Audit (IOSA).
As part of its expansion plan, GoAir has placed a firm order of 144 Airbus A320 Neo aircraft. The delivery of the same has begun and currently has 36 Aircraft as part of its fleet.
