New Delhi, 25 October 2019: Vistara, India’s finest full-service carrier and a joint venture of Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, today announced a daily (except Wednesdays) direct service to Colombo, Sri Lanka from 25 November 2019 onwards, making it the fourth international destination in its fast-expanding network. The airline will fly its Airbus A320neo aircraft with three-class cabin configuration between Mumbai and Colombo , which makes Vistara the first airline to offer the choice of Premium Economy class for travel on the India and Sri Lanka route, in addition to Economy and Business Class. Customers can also take convenient one-stop connections to/from other cities beyond Mumbai.
Mr. Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said, “Sri Lanka is a very promising destination for Vistara, given the growth it continues to record in trade and tourism, especially as India is the largest tourism source market for Sri Lanka. As we bring India’s only five-star airline on the India-Sri Lanka route, we are confident that our entry will further fuel the travel appetite among people.”
Bookings for flights to and from Colombo are progressively opened 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.
Vistara is India’s highest-rated airline on Skytrax and TripAdvisor and the winner of several ‘Best Airline’ awards. It has consistently raised the bar for operations and service delivery in the Indian aviation industry in a short span of time to be today known as India’s only five-star airline (per 2020 APEX OFFICIAL AIRLINE RATINGS™). Vistara continues to grow rapidly across India and abroad, as it is poised to induct as many as 56 narrow-body and wide-body aircraft over the next four years, including 50 aircraft from the Airbus A320neo family for domestic and international short and medium-haul operations and 6 Boeing B787-9 for long-haul international operations.
