Tags: GoAir, News
Wadia group-owned budget carrier GoAir plans to enhance capacity by 21% in this fiscal by expanding its route network across metro and non-metro cities and higher aircraft utilisation.

"We are planning to increase capacity by 21%, offering over 8.5 million seats in the current fiscal," GoAir chief executive Giorgio De Roni told PTI here.

He said the airline's strategy to achieve this goal is based on few pillars that constitute its "Vision 2015".

"Vision 2015 entails offering customers the most attractive and sustainable fares; high aircraft utilisation, an efficient cost structure and further strengthening of services between metro airports and tier II and tier III cities, particularly to those markets that have consistently grown at remarkable rates in the recent years," he said.

GoAir has registered a very healthy traffic growth of 12.5 and 14.6% in the first two months of the 2014-15 fiscal, which helped it corner a record 9.5% market share, De Roni said.

This has been achieved with consistently lowest number of passenger complaints in the industry in the last fiscal along with profitable and sustainable growth, he added.

GoAir operates over 900 flights a week to 21 domestic destinations with a fleet of 19 aircraft. It is set to add delivery of one more aircraft in July.

Besides, GoAir has ordered for 72 NEO Airbus aircraft and the deliveries of these planes are expected between 2016 and 2020.
