Air Bubble: India’s Vistara eyes operations to Paris, Frankfurt

New Delhi: Even as uncertainty looms over a possible second wave of Covid-19 pandemic, full-service air carrier Vistara is eyeing opportunities to expand internationally under the ‘Air Bubble’ transport agreements.

According to Vistara’s Chief Commercial Officer Vinod Kannan, the airline is reviewing opportunity to ferry passengers to and from Paris and Frankfurt using its recently acquired Dreamliner aircraft.

Last month, the airline commenced ‘special, non-stop’ flight operations between Delhi and London’s Heathrow airport by deploying its Boeing 787-900 Dreamliner aircraft.

“In less than a month since starting our services to London Heathrow, we have been seeing a reasonable demand on the route,” he said.

“In view of this reassuring response, we have increased our frequency from three to four flights a week between Delhi and London, effective September 27, 2020.”

“We are reviewing the opportunity to operate similar flights to Paris and Frankfurt as well which will also be operated by the Dreamliner.”

Accordingly, the airline is also exploring additional, viable revenue-generating opportunities including that of long-haul charter flights.
