The budget carrier GoAir has been doing a series of expansions in July. Last week, the airline announced the launch of flight services on seven new international routes as part of its overseas expansion plans. It announced three new destinations Bangkok, Dubai and Kuwait, which are new markets for GoAir.
GoAir already flies to Abu Dhabi and Muscat from Kannur, and it flies to Phuket and Maldives from Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai. The services to the Maldives are, however, currently on hold.
“These planned launches will strengthen GoAir’s presence in the Middle East and South-East Asian countries. The network expansion is in sync with our vision to expand our footprint in strategic markets and to grow our business profitably,” said Jeh Wadia, managing director and acting chief executive officer, GoAir.
