India's GoAir set for int'l debut in 4Q18 as Vistara slips

GoAir has once more, set out plans for its much anticipated international debut, now due to take place during the final quarter of this year.

According to the PTI news agency, India's Civil Aviation secretary R N Choubey told reporters last week that GoAir had applied for, and been granted, permission to start flights from the new Kannur International Airport, set to open on October 1, to Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

Founded in 2005, GoAir currently operates a fleet of nineteen A320-200s and eighteen A320neo on flights spanning 23 towns and cities across India. In preparation for its inaugural flights abroad, the Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation (MOCA) has already endorsed the LCC's Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) for international operations.

Vistara is also in the process of putting together plans for its own foreign services but may have to modify them given a lack of space for an additional Indian carrier on the routes it wants to serve. In July, The Economic Times reported the Singapore Airlines/Tata Group joint-venture airline had applied to MOCA for international traffic rights to serve multiple South East Asian and Indian Subcontinent destinations.
