Go First cancellations continue, airline scraps flights till June 14
Indian airline GoFirst cancels flights until June 14 for 'operational reasons' amid its ongoing Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process.
Beleaguered Indian carrier Go First cancelled a fresh set of flights on Friday, thwarting travel plans till June 14. The company is currently going through the Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process and cited ‘operational reasons’ for the announcement.
Go First has been looking to resume flight operations in recent days and also assured travellers that they would soon reopen for bookings. According to reports, the carrier has sought DGCA permission to resume operations with 22 aircrafts and 152 daily flights. The revival plan once submitted by Go First shall be reviewed by the regulator for further appropriate action in the matter.
“As you are aware the company has filed an application for immediate resolution and revival of operations. We will be able to resume bookings shortly," the statement added.
Go First has been non-operational since May 3. The NCLT on May 10 admitted the plea of Go First to initiate voluntary insolvency resolution proceedings and appointed Abhilash Lal of Alvarez and Marsal as IRP of the airline.
The developments come less than a day after the insolvency tribunal NCLT issued a notice to the Interim Resolution Professional of the crisis-hit airline over a plea filed by supply chain company Delhivery. The latter has alleged that the carrier's insolvency process is a sham. It said the airline took payments of ₹57 lakh from Delhivery on May 2 - the day it filed its request - despite knowing that it was filing for voluntary insolvency before NCLT.
