GoAir is set to operate its maiden flight starting today from Kannur to Kuwait with a brand new Airbus A320 aircraft. The flight will take off from Kerala’s 2nd Greenfield and 4th International Airport that is built on Public Private Partnership in an area of about 2,300 acres. GoAir’s inaugural flight from Kannur to Kuwait has received fantastic response and the flights are fully booked.
With Kuwait becoming GoAir’s 4th destination in the Gulf region, close on the heels of launching Muscat, Abu Dhabi, followed by Dubai and now the princely state of Kuwait, reveals GoAir’s robust plans to expand its operations across the Middle East region. In doing so, Kannur has emerged as a strategic hub for GoAir’s domestic as well as international operations. Kannur is a popular destination for both leisure and business travelers within the state of Kerala and the new route to Kuwait will provide more affordable flying options to the international travellers.
Jeh Wadia, Managing Director, GoAir said, “GoAir is pleased to share that the response to Kannur Kuwait flight has been overwhelming to say the least. We are very enthused with the way things have progressed and tomorrow GoAir’s inaugural flight to Kuwait will take-off. Ever since we started flying international, GoAir has added 16 aircraft to the network in the last 10 months resulting in 90 new flights. We have added 7 new airports to our network – Phuket, Male, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Dubai, Bangkok and Kannur. Tomorrow we will be starting Kuwait operations – our 8th new airport operations. GoAir will be launching Singapore flights soon (subject to regulatory approvals).”
