DGCA queries To submit a revival plan in 30 days, go first: Report


The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) of India has asked the Mumbai-based charter airline Go First to submit its revival plan within 30 days, according to a report by The Times of India.

The DGCA order comes after the carrier failed to show its financial and business plan that could determine its operational capabilities. Go First has reportedly not operated any flight since March of this year owing to economic losses.

The plan should be submitted within 30 days of issuance, according to the DGCA’s show-cause notice dated 7th November. Go First had earlier received a three-month extension of its air operator permit (AOP), which expired on October 7. The DGCA had given the airline additional weeks to submit a revival plan.

The DGCA directive apparently noted that the airline’s revival plan must include valid evidence that it has adequate funds to relaunch operations as well as assurance that aircraft crews and other ground staff are experienced and capable to take up the responsibilities of running regular and safe flights, as per the report.
