Vistara Launches 6th Flight Between Delhi & London

Indian carrier, Vistara, is set to increase its frequencies on routes between London Heathrow and Delhi. From 2 April, Vistara will offer six weekly flights, taking off every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Vistara has seen a rapid expansion of its services in the past few years, currently operating 250 daily flights to 42 destinations across Asia, the Middle East, and Europe.

The carrier has seen a big boost from “air transport bubbles” between India and European destinations, operating flights between London, Frankfurt, and, most recently, Paris. The carrier is likely to benefit from European sanctions on Russian airspace as it does not need to reroute any current flight paths, saving on flight time and increasing demand.

India will terminate its air bubbles from 27 March, opening the country to all international carriers and expanding Vistara’s presence further.

Vistara is expected to launch direct flights between the United States and India in the coming months, pending FAA approval and the delivery of four outstanding Boeing 787 Dreamliners. The carrier has already received approval from the Department of Transport.

The young airline recently celebrated its seventh birthday, welcoming over 30 million passengers in that time. Vistara has managed to bounce back from the pandemic quite quickly, retaining all staff members, doubling its market share, and adding additional aircraft to its fleet.

Vistara’s current fleet is expected to grow even further throughout the year, aiming to expand from 51 to 70. It currently operates a mix of Boeing and Airbus narrowbodies for its short-haul routes and two 787s for international operations.
