Go First announced its bankruptcy on Tuesday. After this, the company went to the National Company Law Tribunal so that it could be officially stamped. On Thursday, NCLT reserved the decision after hearing the petition of Go First. But in the meanwhile something happened which is quite unique. Many pilots of the company reached to Tata Group’s airlines Air India in search of jobs.
In fact, Air India had held a walk-in interview drive on Thursday for the recruitment of pilots. This means any capable person could go to this drive and give job interview. In this interview drive at a Tata Group hotel in Delhi, many pilots arrived with their resumes, in which many pilots were from the troubled GoFirst Airlines.
Pilots trying to save license
A pilot of GoFirst, who came to interview at Tata’s Taj Hotel, told that the sudden closure of GoFirst is very sad. The airlines was running as if everything is normal, but now it has declared itself bankrupt. According to the news of Reuters, most of the pilots say that they are forced to change their jobs so that the validity of their existing flying license remains.
