Vistara Takes To The Skies

Vistara, the joint venture airline by Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, took to the skies for the first time today.


The inaugural service of India’s third full-service carrier, flight UK 890 from Delhi to Mumbai, was given a grand send off from Indira Gandhi International Airport. The country’s Minister of Tourism, Culture & Civil Aviation, Dr Mahesh Sharma, cut the ceremonial ribbon in the presence of senior executives from the airline and its parent companies. A group of children from the Salaam Baalak Trust joined the dignitaries on the flight.


In an effort to differentiate itself from the competition, Vistara will offer a range of customer service initiatives. Each of its 148-seat Airbus A320s will feature Business, Premium Economy and Economy class seating and inflight dining options will be varied with up to 17 choices, while ground service will include online and mobile check-in avenues together with a frequent flyer programme affiliated with Taj Hotels, Resorts & Palaces.


Vistara currently flies 2 routes to Mumbai and Ahmedabad from Delhi, with plans to expand its network to Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Goa, Hyderabad, Jammu, Patna and Srinagar in its first year of operations.
