Vistara Takes Delivery Of Its Second Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Vistara is set to take delivery of its second Boeing 787 later today. The aircraft left Boeing’s facility in Everett, Washington, at 07:40 local time and is expected to touch down in Delhi in the next few hours. The delivery also coincides with India’s Independence Day, a well-timed move by Vistara.
Vistara’s second 787, registration VT-TSE, has been spotted at Boeing facilities since late March. While originally deliveries for the six 787 were to end by 2021, Vistara is trying to extend this deadline due to the current downturn, only taking delivery of two 787s this year.
VT-TSE took off from Everett, Washington, at 07:40 (local time), and at the time of writing is over Uzbekistan. The aircraft is expected to land in Delhi in the next few hours, just as military aircraft are in the sky to mark Independence Day. The timing is likely not a coincidence but rather a well-planned move by Vistara to mark an important day.
Inside the Dreamliner, interiors are likely identical to Vistara’s first one. The plane will feature a three-class configuration, with economy, premium economy, and business class cabins. The business class onboard is similar to Singapore Airlines’ regional 787, making for a comfortable flight.
With the delivery of its second 787, Vistara is all set to start flights to Europe. The first three destinations will be London, Paris, and Frankfurt, all major hubs. Flights to London will likely begin first, as early as next week, according to some reports, as Vistara finalizes a slot at Heathrow.
