He further said that we have clearly said that we want the flight to resume. They (Go First) have to submit their plan to DGCA, which will have number of planes and routes and based on their plan, DGCA will further implement it.

GoFirst gave the latest update regarding the flights on Wednesday. Now all flights have been canceled till May 26. GoFirst said that we regret to inform that GoFirst flights scheduled until May 26 have been cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the flight cancellation.

Bankruptcy was announced on 3 May
GoFirst Airlines was the first to cancel all its flights from May 3 to 5. Airlines informed the DGCA about this. Reportedly, Go First is facing financial crisis due to non-supply of engines by US-based jet engine manufacturer Pratt & Whitney (P&W). Which has forced more than 50 aircraft not to fly. The airline’s market share fell from 9.8 per cent a year ago to 6.9 in March, according to data from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
