India’s budget airline, GoAir has announced the addition of 4 new destinations - Patna, Pune, Leh and Lucknow to its growing network. While the Delhi-Patna flight will start operations from September 2nd, the flights to other destinations will begin from October 2nd. With the addition of these 4 stations, GoAir will operate more than 1,162 weekly flights, connecting 19 stations.
“We have evaluated all the routes before zeroing on these four which are the topmost in terms of profitability after Delhi and Mumbai. Also, there is no capacity being added by any other airline on the Leh and Pune routes, which would make these routes even more profitable,” GoAir CEO, Kaushik Khona said.
The new services besides strengthening the airlines’ existing network will also benefit travelers in a huge way. The carrier besides adding 2 Airbus A320 aircraft to its fleet in the next 2 months will also deploy 10 new Airbus 320 aircraft by March 2013.
Mumbai-based GoAir also recently increased its frequency of flights to Nanded, the second largest city of Maharashtra. According to a release from the airline, the frequency has been increased to 4 flights a week following persistent requests to enhance connectivity to Nanded from Delhi, Mumbai and Nagpur.
