Here Is Everything You Need To Know About Your Safe Journey with Go First

Your health and well-being is our top priority. We have taken all the necessary measures mandated by the government to make your travel contactless and safe. However, it is pertinent and imperative that those who fly with us take the necessary precautions and safety measures and play their part in being safe and flying safely.

Here is everything we have done to make sure you have a safe flying experience with Go First.

Steps We Have Taken To Ensure Your Safety

At the Airport

  • We are regularly disinfecting all Go First touchpoints such as check-in counters, kiosks, gate counters, and baggage drop counters
  • Placing proper distancing markers to ensure social distancing
  • Maintaining social distancing at the boarding gate and inside the coaches


  • Protective Gear

All Go First airport staff and crew members have been equipped with sanitizers, gloves and personal protective equipment (PPE) for your safety.

  • Sanitization of aircraft

Each aircraft is disinfected and sanitized before every flight using Environment Protection Agency (EPA) approved hospital grade disinfectants. Passenger seats, seat belt buckles, armrests, overhead nozzles, tray tables, galleys and lavatories are thoroughly disinfected given the frequency of contact.

  • Advanced air circulation system

The cabin air flows vertically from ceiling to floor and gets absorbed for filtration. This minimizes the spread of possible viruses in the cabin.

  • HEPA filters

Our aircraft are equipped with HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters which filter out recirculated air on-board to remove up to 99.999% of harmful airborne particles such as viruses and bacteria.
