GoAir suspends 19 flights for second consecutive day

Published on : Tuesday, December 24, 2019

For the second consecutive day GoAir suspended operations for 19 flights across destinations. The Wadia group-owned GoAir had suspended 21 flights on Monday due to non-availability of aircraft and inadequate operating crew. The company had, however, attributed the suspension of these flights to protests against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), hostile weather and the duty norms for the cockpit crew, among others.

 

According to news reports, thousands of passengers were left stranded.

 

“GoAir has cancelled 19 flights so far today (Tuesday) as it grapples with shortage of aircraft and pilots,” a source in the know of development said.

 

The airline operates over 200 flights per day to domestic and international destinations with a fleet of 57 aircraft. Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Patna and Lucknow, among others, are the cities from where these flights have been cancelled.

 

On Sunday also, GoAir’s Chandigarh flight from Mumbai was diverted back to the city due to a technical snag. In this incident also, the airline had to take the aircraft out of operations and deploy another plane to fly the stranded passengers to their destination.

 

On Monday, the airline was forced to ground an A320 plane, which had to land in Guwahati shortly after departing for Kolkata following the pilot detecting a “minor” technical problem.
