Vistara crosses 3 million passenger mark in less than 2 years

Tata-SIA run Vistara today crossed the 3-million passenger mark in less than two years of its launching services in the rapidly growing domestic aviation market.
The 3 millionth passengers, Abhinav Adhikari, flew on the airline's Kolkata-Delhi route, Vistara said in a release.
A joint venture between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, Vistara had commenced its flight services in January 2015.
The landmark passenger was gifted with a courtesy upgrade to Vistara's Business Class cabin on his flight to Delhi, the airline said.
The Delhi headquartered airline currently enjoys 2.5 per cent market share.
"It (flying three million passengers) is a significant milestone... This milestone celebration could not have been timely, as it is taking place just before Diwali," Vistara Chief Executive Officer Phee Teik Yeoh said.
