What a pleasant surprise! I flew with GoAir from Delhi to Mumbai yesterday, and this budget airline is really improving.

GoAir was once known to be the least punctual of India's domestic airlines. However, my flight left right on time, which confirmed GoAir's jump in on-time flight performance over the last couple of months.

GoAir has also recently expanded its routes, and added three new A320 Airbus airplanes to its fleet. The airline now has the youngest fleet in India, with an average age of approximately seven months. I found the A320 Airbus to be very comfortable. My seat in row 5 was just behind business class, and this row had an extremely generous amount of legroom.

GoAir's new routes include some of the more remote parts of India, particularly Guwahati (the gateway to the North East), Jammu and Srinagar. In addition, GoAir is renowned for offering the lowest fares in India.

Although my ticket stated a 15 kilogram baggage allowance, I was advised by the airline that the limit is actually a generous 25 kilograms. Even better if you're an international passenger. You can check in 40 kilograms worth of luggage free if you fly withing 24 hours of arriving in India.
