India orders Go First plane cancellation

Judges' decision due to company insolvency

The cancellation of the registration of the aircraft in the fleet of the Indian low-cost airline Go First is underway. This is what was decided by the High Court of New Delhi in recent days. Due to the insolvency of the airline, the judges ordered the Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to proceed with the removal of the aircraft from the lists.

Go First suspended flights in May 2023 and filed for bankruptcy protection shortly thereafter. At that point the rental companies took action to regain possession of their aircraft: a total of 54 planes, that is the entire fleet of the airline, which had actually rented all the planes.

The High Court judges, in a 141-page ruling issued on April 26, 2024, ordered the Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation to initiate cancellation procedures within five working days, also prohibiting access, use and removal of any component from any aircraft. The court also asked the Airports Authority of India to clarify to the lessors every aspect related to the export and airworthiness of the vehicles, which will be rented to other interested companies.
