GO FIRST set to resume Srinagar – Sharjah Flight, adds more Flights from Delhi to Srinagar & Leh


In a boost to international travel, GO FIRST (formerly known as GoAir), is set to resume scheduled direct flights to and from Srinagar to Sharjah from end of June 2022. The airline has recently received the bilateral rights to operate five flights per week on the Srinagar-Sharjah-Srinagar route and the final approval is awaited.

The airline had started the Srinagar-Sharjah flight on October 23 last year connecting Jammu and Kashmir with the United Arab Emirates after 11 years. Union Home Minister Amit Shah had inaugurated the flight.

GO FIRST will also introduce five additional direct flights to and from Srinagar to Delhi and two additional flights between Leh and Delhi in order to cater to the additional demand from the impending Amarnath Yatra on June 30.

With enhanced connectivity, these new flights will be offering travel options to the pilgrims. GO FIRST currently operates nine flights daily between Delhi and Srinagar and five flights daily between Delhi and Leh.

Last year, the Jammu and Kashmir government signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with GO FIRST for the transportation of perishable horticulture and agricultural produce to various destinations across the country. GO FIRST had also signed a pact with the UAE-based Lulu Group to transport cargo from Srinagar to Sharjah in 2021.
