New Delhi: Vistara, a joint venture of Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, announced its arrival on the global map with flights to Singapore from New Delhi and Mumbai starting on August 6 and 7, respectively.
The airline will operate two daily flights to Singapore -- one each from New Delhi and Mumbai. Customers will be able to take one-stop connections to and from several other cities like Amritsar, Chandigarh, Jammu, Lucknow, Ranchi, Raipur, Srinagar, and Varanasi.
Vistara will fly its Boeing 737-800NG aircraft with two-class cabin configuration (business and economy). It plans to expand its international network further to other destinations.
"We are 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," said Vistara's CEO Leslie Thng. "We present to the world today a shining new symbol of warm Indian hospitality with a contemporary approach and world-class service," he said.
