Go First

New Delhi: Aviation regulator DGCA on Friday allowed airline GoFirst to resume flight operations with certain conditions. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Friday said it has approved GoFirst’s plan to resume operations with 15 aircraft and 114 daily flights with certain conditions.

The insolvency resolution process is underway against GoFirst. The company stopped its airlines on May 3. The airline’s resumption of operations plan to operate 15 aircraft and 114 daily flights has been reviewed and accepted, DGCA said in a press release.

“The approval is subject to the outcome of the writ petitions/applications pending before the Delhi High Court and Delhi Bench of NCLT (National Company Law Tribunal),” the DGCA said.

According to the press release, GoFirst may start operating the services after receiving interim funding and permission from DGCA for scheduled flights. The regulator directed GoFirst to comply with all applicable regulatory requirements and also to regularly check the airworthiness of the aircraft.


The resolution professional (RP) of the airline submitted the plan to resume services to the DGCA on June 28. Thereafter, the DGCA conducted a special audit of various flight facilities of the company in Mumbai and Delhi.
