GO FIRST transports 63 oxygen concentrators to Delhi


Delhi, June 3, 2021: GO FIRST (formerly known as GoAir) ferried a shipment of 63 oxygen
concentrators to Delhi from Mumbai to be distributed across the state. Delhi is in dire need
of O2 concentrators. The concentrators have been provided by the franchise cricket team
Punjab Kings, which has tied up with Round Table India for distributing oxygen
concentrators to patients with mild to moderate symptoms.
These concentrators are given free of charge to the patients and after use, they are properly
sterilised/sanitised and given to other patients. By using the concentrators, patients do not
have to depend on oxygen cylinders or go to hospitals for oxygen beds. This means that
cylinders and hospital beds can be used for patients with severe Covid symptoms.
Speaking on the initiative, Mr. Kaushik Khona, CEO, GO FIRST, said: “We at GO FIRST have
always been at the forefront of providing support to the community to fight this
unprecedented crisis. We will continue to support the nation in overcoming this pandemic.”
GO FIRST has been committed in its effort to support the nation’s fight against the
unprecedented Covid crisis. Last month, the airline ferried oxygen concentrators to Patna, in
collaboration with the Rotary Club of Ahmedabad.
Recently, the company also announced its drive to vaccinate all its employees and bear the
cost of the same.
Founded as GoAir, GO FIRST, which was recently rebranded from GO AIR, is the aviation
foray of the Wadia Group, which is one of the oldest conglomerates in India that comprises
brands including 150-year-old Bombay Burmah, 140-year-old Bombay Dyeing, 102-year-old
Britannia Limited., 67-year-old National Peroxide Limited, a [nine-year-old WadiaRealty
Private Limited]
