Vistara, a new Indian airline, has launched flights between Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport and Mumbai's GVK Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.

 The airline, a joint venture between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, is operating 148-seat Airbus A320-200 aircraft on the route.

The aircraft have a three-class configuration with 16 seats in Business, 26 seats in Premium Economy, and 96 seats in Economy.

 Dr Mahesh Sharma, the Minister of State for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation said, “Though India is projected to be the third largest aviation market globally by 2020, and the sector opening up to allow 49 % FDI will attract many new players, the focus will be on safety and quality, which is more important. Also it is the prime minister’s vision to develop India as a leading tourism hub and connectivity is imperative to achieve this. So we welcome Vistara.”

Mr Goh Choon Phong, CEO, Singapore Airlines said, “India’s aviation market has been expanding rapidly and we have been eager to directly participate in and contribute towards this growth story for many years. We are confident that Vistara will help to stimulate market demand and provide economic benefits to India, and are committed to supporting Vistara to deliver on its brand promise to Indian travellers.”
