In early May of this year, the low-cost airline Go First (formerly known as GoAir) filed for insolvency. For some time, the corporation had been plagued by engine problems, which had resulted in the grounding of a substantial number of its aircraft.

On May 2, Go First stopped its flights and filed for voluntary bankruptcy with the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), blaming Pratt & Whitney, a US-based engine manufacturer, for its inability to satisfy obligations on time, resulting in the grounding of a portion of its fleet.

The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) issued a moratorium and named an Interim Resolution Professional (IRP) on May 10. The Committee of Creditors (CoC) then designated Shailendra Ajmera as the Resolution Professional (RP) for Go First on June 9, which was later confirmed by the NCLT.

The airline employs roughly 4,200 people and reported total income from operations of Rs. 4,183 crore in fiscal year 2021-22. According to sources, the suspension of the Go First planes pushed up rates, particularly on specific routes where it had a presence.
