GoAir happens to be one of the most popular low cost carrier in India, after IndiGo. The airline has been credited with being the fastest growing airline in India and is owned by the Wadia group. The carrier also has connectivity in Oman as well. However, looking at the events of the past few days, with the demise of the honorable leader Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al, GoAir has remarked that there could be traffic disruption in the region. There could be a lot of passengers flying in and out of Muscat for a few days, GoAir has announced a full waiver of cancellation and rescheduling fees for the passengers flying to and from Oman until January 14. GoAir has cited, “traffic incidents” for these waivers.
Free Cancellation and Rescheduling for Oman Passengers
The airline said, “GoAir offers a complete waiver of cancellation and rescheduling fees for flights to and from Oman.” The carrier has also added that the waiver of this fee will be applicable until January 14. It is worth noting that the leader of Oman, Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said passed away on January 10, at the age of 79. PM Modi also acknowledged the death of the Sultan and addressed him as a beacon of peace for the region. The government has also declared a one day state mourning as “sign of respect for the deceased dignitary.”
GoAir Adding New Routes Rapidly
It is worth noting that GoAir happens to be one of the most preferred airline in India with new connectivity which is only increasing. The airline is also rapidly increasing its fleet to cater to the new demand. Recently in December, the carrier has announced 22 new flights which are now live across 6 routes. These six new routes include Ahmedabad-Indore, Bengaluru – Kochi, Kochi – Hyderabad, Delhi – Varanasi, Delhi – Indore, Ahmedabad- Varanasi. Although GoAir has been adding new flights and introducing new routes to its network, it is facing a slight crunch of pilots with not enough pilots to fly the planes. However, GoAir has still won the award for being the best on-time airline in India.
