Crisis-hit Indian budget carrier, Go First on Saturday extended the cancellation of its flights till June 28, 2023, due to operational reasons. This is the tenth time that the carrier has extended the cancellation of flights since the first announcement was made on May 2.

In a statement released online, Go First said, “We regret to inform you that due to operational reasons, Go First flights scheduled till 28 June 2023, have been cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the flight cancellations.”

The company has cited a number of reasons for the cancellations, including the non-delivery of engines by the US engine maker Pratt & Whitney. It has also said that it is facing financial difficulties and has a total of Rs 11,463 crore in liabilities, including Rs 6,521 crore in bank dues.

Full Refund for Affected Passengers

Passengers who have been affected by the cancellations can seek refunds or reschedule their flights. The company has said that it will be providing full refunds to passengers who have already booked their tickets. Passengers who wish to reschedule their flights can do so by contacting the airline’s customer care.

To claim your refund, simply access the “Ease My Claims” portal and provide the necessary details as instructed. The airline will review your request and process the refund accordingly.

By utilizing the “Ease My Claims” portal, Go First aims to streamline the refund process and ensure a hassle-free experience for affected passengers seeking reimbursement for their cancelled flights.

The latest extension of the flight cancellations is a major blow to Go First, which is already struggling financially. The company is currently undergoing a voluntary insolvency resolution process and it is unclear when it will be able to resume normal operations.
