GoAir is the fifth Indian carrier to fly overseas. Currently, the Air India group, IndiGo, Jet Airways and SpiceJet fly abroad. The Air India group comprises Air India and its low-cost subsidiary Air India Express.
GoAir was given permission to start international operations from the new Kannur international airport to Dammam in Saudi Arabia, Civil Aviation secretary R N Choubey told reporters earlier.
At present, GoAir operates only domestic flights despite meeting the eligibility criteria for flying on international routes as it has a fleet of over 20 aircraft.
