Vistara Set To Have A Fleet Of 70 Aircraft By 2023

Vistara has been making good progress with the expansion of its fleet. Notably, it took on its first Boeing 787-9 aircraft this year. The Indian carrier currently has 42 jets at its facilities. However, the operator is not looking to slow down any time soon as it expects to hold approximately 70 planes after three years.

The Haryana-headquartered carrier has only been operating for half a decade. However, it has been progressing yearly with expansions with both its network and fleet. The addition of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a milestone for the airline as it shows its intent of expanding internationally on long-haul operations.

As a result, Vistara has been seeing great success with new services to the likes of London this year. The carrier inaugurated flights to the capital of the United Kingdom in August, and there has been a positive response to these operations. Subsequently, the airline is increasing frequency from four flights a week to daily flights on the route, effective from December 1st.

A Vistara spokesperson discussed the plans of the carrier with Simple Flying. The representative emphasized how the company started the financial year with 42 planes but will end the year with 47. In total, this is a net addition of five aircraft. The new members include three Boeing 787-9s and two Airbus A321neo aircraft. Moreover, seven older Airbus A320ceo jets are being replaced with brand new A320neos.

Altogether, the fleet of fresh Airbus narrowbodies and Boeing widebodies gives the carrier the perfect balance to handle short and long-haul operations. The spokesperson talked about the target market for the airline and its plans in the long run.

“Being India’s finest full-service carrier, Vistara has attracted business/corporate and discerning leisure travelers since its inception. However, in our journey so far, we have been able to create a strong proposition for every customer segment with varied offerings across our three cabin classes,” the spokesperson told Simple Flying.
