DATA SPOTLIGHT: GoAir

This year The Blue Swan Daily will feature some of the leading airlines, airports and country markets for air travel. Here, using the extensive profile insights available to CAPA – Centre for Aviation members to deliver a data snapshot, we look at GoAir, and Indian carrier that is exploring a range of new fare options to make travellers more confident to book with the airline during the current ongoing health crisis.

The carrier has been slowly resuming and adding routes as India has permitted the return of flights, but continues to operate just a limited network. To support its resumption and meet traveller concerns over the safety of the travel experience and maintain physical distancing it has deployed some new ticketing options.

These comprise ‘GoMore’, a fare option permitting passengers to purchase a seat in the first two rows and ensure the middle seat remains vacant and ‘GoFlyPrivate’, a fare option permitting passengers to “book multiple rows and create your own private zone” on domestic services. The airline’s managing director Jeh Wadia describes the latter as a concept that will cost “a fraction of a full-fledged private charter flight” but will provide “the same sense of privacy that the customer would otherwise feel in a private charter”.

ABOUT
Established in 2005 and wholly-owned by the Wadia Group, GoAir is a low-cost carrier based at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai with a secondary hub at Indira Gandhi International Airport. The carrier operates an extensive network of domestic services within India using Airbus A320 family aircraft.
