GoAir said on Friday it has offered government its aircraft, crew and airport staff to carry out emergency services and repatriation of citizens, two days after another low-cost carrier IndiGo made a similar offer.

While there is a ban on international and domestic passenger flights in the country, all-cargo flights can operate as usual, according to the aviation regulator DGCA.

However, DGCA is yet to give permission to airlines to operate flights using their commercial passenger aircraft with just cargo in their belly.

"GoAir has reached out to the Ministry of Civil Aviation and the DGCA and offered its services in the wake of a complete lock down across the nation," the airline said in a press release.

India suspended domestic passenger flights from midnight on March 24 and all international flights from 1.30 AM on March 23.
