New Delhi, Singapore, 11 July 2019: Vistara, India’s finest full-service carrier and a joint venture of Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, now arrives on the global map with flights to Singapore from Delhi and Mumbai starting 6th and 7th August 2019, respectively. Vistara will operate two daily flights to Singapore, one each from Delhi and Mumbai, providing its globally applauded service to travellers on these routes. Customers can also take convenient one-stop connections to and from several other Indian cities beyond Delhi and Mumbai, including but not limited to Amritsar, Chandigarh, Jammu, Lucknow, Ranchi, Raipur, Srinagar and Varanasi. The airline will soon expand its international network further to other destinations.
Vistara will fly its Boeing 737-800NG aircraft with two-class cabin configuration (Business and Economy) to Singapore.
Mr. Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said, “We present to the world today a shining new symbol of warm Indian hospitality with a contemporary approach and world-class service. We’re excited to start with Singapore as our first international destination, which we see as a very important market, given the opportunities it presents for corporate, business as well as leisure travel. As we soon take the ‘new feeling of flying’ to more international destinations, we hope to provide our customers from overseas the finest way to experience India, and inspire travellers from across India to explore more of the world.”
Mr. Thng added, “We thank our customers, partners and all other stakeholders for their support that makes Vistara what it is today. We are grateful to the concerned authorities in India and Singapore for their support.”
Vistara aims to take its India success story to global markets, building on its unique attributes and by continuing to innovate and embed thoughtfulness in service delivery. The airline views Singapore as a key addition to its network, as demand for travel to and from the country continues to increase, complementing the rising trade, business and tourism.
Bookings for flights to Singapore are now being opened progressively on all channels, including Vistara’s website www.airvistara.com, Vistara’s iOS and Android mobile apps, and through Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) and travel agents.
As the highest-rated Indian airline on Skytrax and TripAdvisor, and winner of several ‘Best Airline’ awards, Vistara has consistently raised the bar for operations and service delivery in the Indian aviation industry in a short span of little over four years. The airline now connects 25 destinations, operates over 1200 flights a week served by a fleet of 23 Airbus A320 and six Boeing 737-800NG aircraft, and has flown more than 15 million customers since starting operations in 2015.
Last year, Vistara placed its aircraft order of a combination of purchased and leased aircraft totalling 50 from the Airbus A320neo family (including the A321neo) for domestic India as well as short and medium-haul international operations, with deliveries scheduled between 2019 and 2023. Additionally, the airline has purchased six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft that are scheduled to be delivered between 2020 and 2021, and will be used for long-haul international operations.
