Go First to resume flight operations from May 27, issues internal memo: Report
Go First has reportedly devised a business plan to restart operations with a reduced fleet of 20 aircraft.
Go First, which recently filed for bankruptcy, is reportedly planning to resume flight operations from May 27, according to insiders familiar with the low-cost airline's strategy. As part of their preparations, the airline is organising training sessions for its pilots starting tomorrow.
While initial expectations hinted at a partial resumption of flights from May 24 to maintain its air operator certificate, the airline is yet to submit an interim flight schedule to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the civil aviation regulator, as per insider information.

The DGCA, on May 8, issued a show cause notice to Go First, seeking an explanation for their inability to run operations within 15 days. Consequently, the aviation regulator suspended the airline from accepting new bookings and halted ticket sales.
Go First's revival plans signify a potential comeback for the airline, which has faced significant challenges in recent times. With the proposed measures, the airline aims to gradually regain stability and rebuild its operations to provide air travel services to its customers once again.
