Go Air airlines to start operations from Bhubaneswar airport

Go Air, a low-fare airline, has decided to launch 4 daily flights from Bhubaneswar Biju Patnaik domestic airport to New Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata from the 26th of October this year.

In the initial phase, Go Air will have 2 flights from Bhubaneswar to New Delhi and one flight each from Bhubaneswar to Mumbai and Bhubaneswar to Kolkata. Later, it will launch a Bhubaneswar-Bangalore flight in the second phase, as there are only two flights in a week for Bangalore from the state capital.

Go Air will be the third scheduled airline after the national carrier Air India and low cost carrier Indigo to commence domestic operations from Biju Patnaik airport which currently handles 15 daily flights (11 of Indigo and four of Air India).
