On the occasion of the airline announcing its maiden international flight to Phuket starting in October, Wadia group-owned budget carrier, GoAir, is looking for a double digit growth on an annual basis.

In an interview to CNBC-TV18's Uttkarash Chaturvedi, Cornelis Vrieswijk, chief executive officer,  said, "We have picked two destinations, where we see significant growth and demand. There is significant opportunity to start a profitable business internationally. Going forward, we will see robust domestic growth and we will expand internationally."

Mumbai-based airline, which became eligible to fly overseas more than two years ago when it took delivery of its 20th aircraft, which was also the first Airbus A320 Neo for the airline, will be the fifth domestic carrier to have international operations.

Vrieswijk said, "We are looking for profitable growth. So, based on the development of the market, we will decide whether we want to grow faster rather than slower or slower rather than faster. In terms of number of destinations, we have a long list of wishes and I can't share with you at the moment, when and where we will operate going forward. But definitely, there will be more destinations added to our international network."
