Low-cost airline GoAir took to the skies again on June 1. However, Day 1 of operations, after an over two-month coronavirus-led shutdown, was dogged by passenger complaints about cancelled flights and glitches in check-in, among other things.
The airline has also been in the news for revising the compensation of pilots, many of whom will see their salaries plummet by over 65 percent. This is one of the steepest pay cuts in the domestic aviation industry yet.
The airline owned by the Wadia family was the last to resume flights. Rest of the industry had re-started operations on May 25. The airline had said it was awaiting “clarity on the readiness of the respective states and their airports with regard to acceptance of flights, or the conditions applicable to passengers entering the respective states.”CLOSE
On Monday, the airline started off with 24 flights including three from Mumbai.
