Vistara Launches Non-Stop Flight From Pune To Singapore

India’s full-service carrier Vistara launched a new international service, connecting Pune in western India with Singapore. The airline has been on an international expansion spree recently, particularly to shorter offshore routes in the Middle East. It has also increased frequencies to long-haul destinations in Europe after welcoming a third Dreamliner in its fleet recently.

On December 2nd, Vistara became the only airline to start non-stop service between Pune (PNQ) and Singapore (SIN). The flight will be operated by an Airbus A321neo aircraft four times a week. An inaugural event was organized at the Pune airport, which was attended by Gavin Roch, Vice Consul, Consul General of the Republic of Singapore, along with other officials and ministers, and was attended virtually by India’s aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia.

Vistara’s Chief Executive Office, Vinod Kannan, commented, “We are excited to be able to connect Pune and Singapore - two cities that were not directly connected thus far. There is a growing demand for air travel between the two cities especially from corporate travellers. We are confident that customers will appreciate having the option of flying India’s best airline on this sector.”

Vistara also flies to Singapore from Delhi (DEL) and Mumbai (BOM) and is one of many carriers flying to the Southeast Asian destination. Along with carriers like Air India, IndiGo, and others, Singapore Airlines, too, has multiple weekly departures from key Indian cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad, among others.

Pune-Singapore is one of many international routes launched by Vistara recently. In August, it began flying between Mumbai and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, becoming one of six airlines flying on this route.
