Vistara forays into overseas market with first flight from Delhi to London

Vistara operated its first long-haul flight from Delhi to London Heathrow with its brand-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The flight departed from Delhi at 0215 hrs (IST) and landed in London at 0655 hrs (BST). Vistara is operating special, non-stop flights under the bilateral ‘transport bubble’ from August 28 to October 24, 2020 and will fly thrice a week between the two cities. 

Leslie Thng, CEO, Vistara, said, “Though not regular scheduled flights, we are excited about starting operations to our first long-haul destination. This, in many ways, marks the beginning of a new phase of growth in the global skies for Vistara. This also gives us the opportunity to introduce India’s finest and only five-star airline to London.”

“On this very popular route, the flyers now have the choice of experiencing unmatched comfort complemented by high standards of safety and hygiene”, he further added.

Vistara will accept all eligible customers meeting visa/entry requirements in both the countries, as specified by the respective government bodies.
