Vistara Plans To Add More Aircrafts, New Destinations

New Delhi: Soon to complete 5 years of operations, Tata Group-Singapore Airlines backed passenger carrier -- Vistara -- plans to operate beyond the subcontinent and southeast Asia.
The airline which commenced commercial operations on January 9, 2015 has indicated plans to commence services to Europe and Japan by 2020-21.

In an interview to IANS, Vistara's Chief Executive Leslie Thng said India's only full-service private carrier will be able to add destinations with up to 11 hours of flying time as it inducts the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft by early next year.

"The 787-9 aircraft that we induct early next year will be able to fly to destinations with up to 11 hours of flying time," he said.

"The choice of our existing codeshare partners may be indicative of the long-haul destinations that we are looking to add to our network."

The full-service carrier has established interline agreements with 26 airlines around the world and entered codeshare agreements with Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, British Airways, Japan Airlines and United Airlines.
