Due to operational reasons, aviation company, Go First on Sunday announced the cancellation of its flights until July 25th
The announcement was made via a Twitter post on Sunday.  Go First said: “We regret to inform that due to operational reasons, Go First flights scheduled till 25th July 2023 have been cancelled. We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the flight cancellations.”

The airline has approximately 4,200 employees, and it reported total revenue from operations at Rs 4,183 crore in the financial year 2021-22. There were reports that the grounding of the Go First flights had put pressure on airfares, particularly on select routes where it had a footprint
