Go First cancels all flights till May 5 amid bankruptcy, abandons passengers with no ground staff

Several flights were cancelled without any notice much to the frustration of passengers. Go First has promised to refund the ticket expenses to passengers.

It was only a few days ago that India's Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia tweeted about the skyrocketing domestic airline passenger traffic post-Covid and related it to the country's high growth. On April 30, India reached a milestone as domestic air traffic hit a record high with 4,56,082 passengers and 2,978 flights taking off on a single day. Days later, a domestic airlines carrier, Go First, filed for bankruptcy after suspending flights for days due to a lack of cash.
