Wadia Group's GoAir is operating between 75 and 77 percent of its fleet as the home-grown carrier has been struggling to find a stable management team, The Times of India reported.
GoAir has a fleet of 47 Airbus A320 aircraft of which only 35 or 36 are being used, sources told the paper, adding that the problem began ever since the CEO of the airline resigned within nine months of taking up the position.
Cornelis Vrieswijk resigned from the CEO post within nine months, in February, citing personal matters. The former Easyjet executive joined the Wadia group airline only last June.
A GoAir spokesperson told the ToI that the business of the airline has to take into account the lean and the peak season and hence airlines undertake 'scheduled' maintenance and repair work of the airline during the lean season.
