India’s Vistara to fly Colombo from September

Vistara, the joint venture between Tata Sons India and Singapore Airlines Ltd, would fly to Colombo from New Delhi from September. Colombo would be the airline’s first international destination.

The airline will have a daily frequency to Colombo and would deploy an Airbus A320 neo aircraft. It would offer 8 business, 24 premium and 126 economy class seats.

Last year, Vistara had initially hoped to launch international flights after meeting a requirement for 20 aircraft in its fleet. Last month the airline received the Modi government’s approval to launch international flights.

North South Lines Pvt. Ltd of Hayleys would be the GSA for the airline.

The airline which commenced its commercial operations on January 2015, currently has a fleet of over 20 aircraft from A320 neo family, plans to add another 50 such planes. Vistara currently serves 22 destinations with over 800 flights a week. (SS)
