Mumbai, Aug 12 Budget airline Go First, formerly known as GoAir, said on Wednesday it has inducted the 49th Airbus A320neo aircraft into its fleet.

Kaushik Khona, Chief Executive Officer, Go First, said: “We at Go First believe that the airline is uniquely placed with its ultra-low cost structure that has always stood us in good stead.
“Go First has one of the youngest fleet globally — an average fleet age of 3.7 years as on February 2021. As on February 10, 2021, 82 per cent of our fleet is predominantly fuel efficient A320neos – which are 17 to 20 per cent more fuel-efficient than the A320ceo aircraft with the lightest configuration.”
