Vistara Set To Have 6 Boeing 787-9 Aircraft By 2021

Altogether, the global health crisis is having an unprecedented impact on the aviation industry within India and around the world. Several carriers across the globe have been trying to cancel deliveries in the current climate. However, despite the harsh conditions, Vistara is committed to the orders that it has placed with Airbus and Boeing.

A spokesperson for the airline told Simple Flying that it started the 2020-21 financial year with 42 aircraft in its fleet and will end the year with 47, which is a net addition of five aircraft. The arrivals include three new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and two Airbus A321neo aircraft. Additionally, in the current financial year, seven older Airbus A320ceo aircraft are being replaced with brand new A320neos that have more advanced features.

Moreover, next year, there will be at least eight more planes joining. These aircraft are split between Boeing widebodies and Airbus narrowbodies.

“We are on track to have all six Boeing 787-9 jets in our fleet by 2021 and are also expecting two more Airbus A321neo to join our fleet next year. By 2023, Vistara will have a fleet of around 70 aircraft,” the spokesperson told Simple Flying.

“While we had to make necessary adjustments to the delivery schedule due to the pandemic, we continue to remain committed to the overall orders placed with Boeing and Airbus in 2018.”
