British Airways, Vistara celebrate first codeshare flight from India today

New Delhi: The cabin crew of British Airways and Vistara--both the airlines announced a strategic partnership earlier this month--celebrated their first codeshare flight from India today. This means that British Airways will add its ‘British Airways’ designator code to Vistara flights in India, enabling customers to connect seamlessly with Vistara to 13 new destinations across India, said a British Airways statement.

This will enable customers to connect with cities such as Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Goa, Kolkata, Kochi, and Pune, that were previously difficult to access from the UK. British Airways currently operates 49 flights a week between London Heathrow and five key cities in India namely Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad.

Vistara flights operate from the same terminal as British Airways at Delhi (T3) and Mumbai (T2), making connections at these airports even more convenient, said the statement.
The new partnership has also enabled customers to book seats on Vistara flights to destinations across India from Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi.
