Go First, earlier known as GoAir has become the first airline in India to receive AAI (Airports Authority of India) approval for night parking at Srinagar and Jammu and Kashmir. According to a PTI report, Lieutenant Governor Major Sinha launched the night parking facilities in the airports on Thursday.
This will benefit both the airlines and the passengers travelling through these airports as now late night and early morning flights will be possible.
"This is a significant development for the union territory as the night parking permission will facilitate better flight operations from the region," a Go First spokesman said.
"We would like to thank the authorities for their kind consideration and will continue our commitment to the development of Jammu and Kashmir," Chief Executive Officer, Go First, Kaushik Khona said.
"The new beginning reflects our commitment to strengthen connectivity and fulfil the mobility needs of the people. The initiative will make travelling effortless for those looking for single-day travel," Sinha said.
"We are moving ahead to fulfil M Modi's vision of making Jammu and Kashmir a vibrant industrial and tourism hub by developing infrastructure, strengthening the enabling environment and ensuring better connectivity," he added.
