goAir has started accepting bookings on the net and on call centers from today. The site however seems to be experiencing some teething problems. I tried booking on BOM-GOI sector but got an error message. The site does not indicate the date of commencement of operations.

The sectors are BOM-AMD, BOM-GOI and BOM-CJB. CCJ is to be added soon. They promise to offer the lowest fares in India and would like to be known as People's Airlines.

goAir will be handing out 10000 free tickets. Take a 'GO' at it guys.

I wonder how much lower fares can go when I look at Air Deccan. Just tried to place a booking and somehow nothing worked. Will check again in a few days.

The Air Deccan website only works on MSIE and not any other browser. It is also frustratingly slow. That said I managed to get myself a BOM-DEL ticket for Rs 2300 for the 25th - not too bad. However, GoAir wants to be even cheaper than Deccan.

Granted, its not what you'd expect to see in an airlines web page, but I must confess to being rather impressed with Mr. Wadia's volunteer work.

The site seems to be functional at last. The fares are quite low. BOM-CJB for Dec. 1st is Rs. 1699.00 plus 221.00. BOM-GOI is Rs. 999.00+221.00. BOM-AMD for Rs. 999.00+221.00.

I wish they would start flights on BOM-BLR, BLR-DEL sectors.

The promoters are the Wadia's of Bombay Dyeing. A friend managed to get one of the free tickets on offer on BOM-GOI. Lucky bastard!

Sorry for the incorrect information. I picked it up from a local newspaper.

There was a GOAir flight on BOM-AMD sector today. I saw the passengers boarding from gate 10 at the IC terminal at around 10.00 AM today. I did not notice any GoAir counter at the check in area.

I had expected its A320 to be at the domestic apron. I therefore requested for a left hand window seat on my IC flight so that I could see the A/c. VT-WAZ looked cool in the two color livery.

I saw the blue one, now it Indian registration. It was 2nd a/c behind mine in the take off queue.

Is this the carrier which ordered 100 320's in PAris airshow this year?
I remember the name was indigo air.... but goair/indigo air are alike...
Is it the same, or another company?

Another company, but you're right the 100 320's were for Indigo.

A new airline on a domestic route in India is just not making the news lately.

The Indigo order for a 100 A-320 aircraft seems to be going ahead, but not much else as of now. And flights are beginning to go light again after a brief "full up" blip during the holidays.

I wonder is this deal a fact or a gimmick like "HomeTrade" which happened 2001. Does anyone really contemplated about the ground support needed to handle such a large fleet? Where will they park them even if they got half of those numbers?

Even considering a 10 hours daily usage of 80% of the fleet, they need to have several hubs in India to get the turn-over or they need to fly international (which is unlikely if PP's ruling stays).

There has been a whisper that part of the order may convert into different aircraft for a cargo airline, domestic as well as international. Jet Airways is also said to be looking at the cargo/combi operations option, but Indigo is "hot" on that apparently.

On ground support, as Indians, we will manage.

On utilisation, believe me, if you take routes like BOM-GOI or MAA-BLR as examples, you can not put enough aircraft on the route.

That was the Question asked by the CAM too.
But the Induction is very gradual 8 for the 1st year.

9W was considering this a longtime back.Im surprised why they did not go for the B737-700C would be ideal for them,considering they have the rest.
They even approached us to check dimensions etc in 2003.
