Vistara to add more flights from Mumbai ahead of merger

According to a report in The Hindu, notwithstanding the uncertainty over the continuance of the brand name after its merger with Air India by April 2024, Vistara, the joint venture of Tata Sons & Singapore Airlines (SIA), continues to scale up its operations, mostly from Mumbai.

“Mumbai will remain a focus of growth because we have added so much domestic capacity to help grow our international connections,” said Vinod Kannan, CEO, Vistara.

“Today, we operate 12 international flights from Mumbai as compared with 7 from Delhi and more international flights will be added from Mumbai in the coming months,” he added. He said Vistara, which currently has 54 daily domestic departures from Mumbai, will increase them to 67 from August.

By the end of December 2023, Mumbai would have an equal number of domestic departures as Delhi, which currently has 78 daily domestic departures.

Vistara will add 10 more aircraft including three Boeing 787s by March 2024 to take the fleet size to 70 by the time of merger. And most of these aircraft will be deployed in the international sector including Europe, Kannan said.
