Surat – Yet another private airline company is vying to start flight operations from Surat airport. GoAir’s operational team headed by its vice-president (operational) Kamal Kikaniwill be visiting the Surat airport on Tuesday to explore the opportunities to operate flight services.
Sources said that the GoAir team will be inspecting the newly constructed 655 metres of runway and the ongoing work of re-construction of the 185 metre patch at the airport and other infrastructural facilities at the airport terminal.
It must be recalled that this is the second consecutive visit of GoAir senior officials to Surat. Earlier, the team headed by GoAir’s vice-president (network and planning) Clayton Begido had visited the airport to explore the opportunities of flight services in February, 2016.
Sunil Choudhary, member of We Work for a Working Airport at Surat (WWWAS), who was in constant touch with GoAir management said, “We are hopeful that the
GoAir’s operational team will find all the facilities excellent at the airport and will soon start flight services. Surat airport is equipped with all the facilities and Spice Jet is launching its services from Surat to Goa, Hyderabad and Jaipur starting from June 1. GoAir’s services will be an added advantage to the flying Surtis.”
