Vistara’s First Boeing 787 To Be Delivered In February

Vistara is aiming big. Part of their expansion plan involves widebody expansion. The first of six Boeing 787-9s for Vistara will arrive in February 2020. This new development will help Vistara grow their route network.
Flightglobal reports that Vistara chief executive Leslie Thng is expecting the first 787-9 in February of 2020. This development comes on the heels of the launch of Vistara’s first international service to Singapore. Furthermore, Vistara is poised to start Bangkok service soon. Towards the west, Vistara will use Airbus A320neos to Dubai.
In addition to the A320neos, Vistara will also have nine former Jet Airways 737s in its fleet by the end of this month. Undoubtedly, Vistara is aiming big now that one of India’s largest and most well-known carriers no longer exists.
Vistara has not given many details regarding the first routes for their Boeing 787-9s. In a quote to Flightglobal, Thng highlighted the aircraft’s flexibility for routes to Europe and North Asia. These are some of the more likely candidates for Vistara’s first long-haul international service. With inadequate international service, Vistara’s long-haul services will likely help the Indian aviation market.
