Hyderabad, NFAPost: Go First, formerly known as GoAir, reports as the most punctual airline in the country by recording the highest On-Time-Performance (OTP) of 98.1% in April 2021.

The performance of Go First is based on the latest traffic report released by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) for the month of April 2021.

The figure is calculated after studying the performance of all domestic carriers for the four metros, Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai. The airline also recorded ‘least cancelled flights’ in the same time period.

The Airline also recorded the highest increase in market share in April 2021 as compared to March 2021 (Share increased from 7.8% to 9.6%), as compared to other domestic airlines.
