In an earlier published news, it was reported that Vistara has become eligible to fly international destinations with the induction of 21st aircraft to its fleet of aircrafts. Taking cue from this, Vistara on 11th July announced a $3.1-billion key deal with aerospace majors like Airbus and Boeing for 13 A320 neo aircraft and six B787-9 Dreamliners. This deal will enable Vistara to kickstart its international operations from December, 2018.
Vistara is planning its next phase of growth in varied stages. Vistara’s Airbus fleet will handle domestic destinations and short haul international routes. The airline intends to concentrate on regional and South-East Asian destinations which are short haul destinations with a three to five-hour travel time. The airline is also mulling code share with like-minded partners such as Singapore Airlines.
Vistara plans to start medium-haul operations from 2020. It is believed that Vistara is mulling the idea of introducing a premium economy section in its international flights which would open up more choice for travelers in near future.
