GoFirst has said that it will resume scheduled direct flights between Kashmir and Sharjah by the end of this month. “The airline has recently received bilateral rights to operate five flights per week on the Srinagar-Sharjah-Srinagar route and is awaiting final approval,” the airline said in a statement.
The airline launched the Srinagar-Sharjah flight on October 23 last year, reconnecting Jammu and Kashmir with the United Arab Emirates after 11 years. The flight was inaugurated by Union Home Minister Amit Shah. GoFirst will resume scheduled direct flights between Kashmir and Sharjah from the end of June 2022, it said in the statement.
The airline said it will also start five additional direct flights from Srinagar to Delhi and two additional flights between Leh and Delhi to meet the additional demand for the upcoming Amarnath Yatra from June 30.
With better connectivity, these new flights will provide travel options to the pilgrims, it said. FO First currently operates nine flights daily between Delhi and Srinagar and five daily between Delhi and Leh. “Go First is honored to resume services between Srinagar and Sharjah. The service will improve international connectivity and cater to international travel. The Amarnath Yatra is starting soon and we will do everything possible to ensure a hassle-free and joyful travel experience for the pilgrims,” said GoFirst CEO Kaushik Khona.
