GoAir is an Indian Low cost carrier based in Mumbai.[3] It commenced operations in November 2005. It is the aviation foray of the Wadia Group. As of January 2014, it is the fifth largest airline in India by market share.[4] It operates domestic passenger services to 22 cities with over 140 daily flights and approximately 975 weekly flights. Its hubs are at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai[5] and Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi.

History[edit]

GoAir was founded in the year 2005 by Jehangir Wadia, the younger son of eminent Indian industrialist Nusli Wadia. The airline marked the entry into the critical aviation sector for the Wadia Group,[5] an Indian business conglomerate famous for its companies like Bombay Dyeing and Britannia Industries.[6] The Wadia group wholly owns the airline. Jehangir Wadia is also the Managing Director (MD) of the airline.[7] GoAir launched its operations in November 2005 using Airbus A320 aircraft.[6]

Since January 2007, GoAir has been recording an average load factor of 76%.[6] But the airline's growth has been slow, with other airlines established at the same time such as IndiGo and SpiceJet having overtaken GoAir in terms of market share, fleet size and destinations served as of 2013. However, according to Wadia and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Giorgio De Roni, the slow growth of the airline is a company strategy taken up due to the tough aviation environment in India, as a result of which the focus is on maintaining profitability rather than on capturing market share and increasing the destinations and fleet size.[7][8]

In April 2012, the airline moved from sixth and last place to fifth in terms of market share due to the financial crisis at Kingfisher Airlines.[9] But following the grounding of Kingfisher Airlines, the airline once again has the lowest market share (8.8%) as of January 2014.[4]

Destinations[edit]

GoAir operates to 22 destinations in India, with over 140 daily flights and approximately 975 weekly flights.[10] Due to the small size of its fleet (19 aircraft), GoAir does not operate any international flights as per the guidelines of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Government of India, but in 2012 the airline has applied for a waiver regarding the same to the ministry which is yet to be approved.[8]

Fleet[edit]

As of December 2014, the fleet of GoAir consists of the following aircraft. The average fleet age is 3 years.[12][13][14][15]
