First of its kind deal signed by GoAir: To operate special flights on ODI venue sectors.

April 4, 2006

BANGALORE: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has appointed GoAir as the official carrier for the England one-day international cricket (ODI) series.

This means that the airline will fly the Indian and English cricket teams for Delhi, Goa, Cochin, Guwahati, Ranchi, Indore, and Mumbai matches .

The airline operates special flights for this.

Apart from the teams, the airline promoted by Wadias will also offer special rates to journalists traveling with the teams.

GoAir Managing Director Jeh Wadia said the airline’s appointment as the official carrier to the Indian & English teams for the ODI Series was a testimony to its high quality service and the BCCI’s trust in the airline’s ability to meet the needs of the two teams.

BCCI Vice President Lalit Modi said GoAir not only has all the necessary elements to ensure the comfort of players, but will also operate special flights to the 7 cities where the ODI’s will be played, thereby saving players’ time and energy.

GoAir has a fleet of Airbus A320’s on a single class configuration which can accommodate 180 passengers.

GoAir has also signed a pact with Airbus Industries to buy 10 aircraft with options for another 10. The airline’s game plan is to target the Ist class and 2nd class railway passengers. From April, GoAir started operating 28 daily flights to 14 cities in the country.

GoAir started operations on November 4, 2005 with flights to Goa, Ahmedabad, Coimbatore from Mumbai.

Go Air has plans to increase its fleet to 36 aircraft in three years.
