Adding Lucknow and Bengaluru to its fast growing network, Vistara today opened bookings for the two new destinations. Starting May 18, 2015 Vistara will offer daily flights on the Delhi-Lucknow-Delhi route increasing the frequency to double daily flights from June 16, 2015 onward. The Delhi-Bengaluru-Bombay daily return flight will also commence from June 16, 2015. These latest additions to the network are in line with Vistara’s organic expansion plan to connect a mix of metros and non-metros across India.
Mr Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara said, “We are gradually expanding our pan India footprint, and the addition of Lucknow and Bengaluru to our network seemed the most logical way to grow. The historical and culturally rich city of Lucknow has emerged as a leading commercial hub in the state of Uttar Pradesh while also offering a huge potential for tourism. On the other hand, Bengaluru is one of the most preferred cosmopolitan cities in India offering significant prospects for corporate travel. We are optimistic about the opportunities that these destinations will offer for corporate and leisure travel to our customers.”
With these latest additions Vistara’s network now connects ten cities including Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Bagdogra, Guwahati, Goa, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Mumbai and Pune. Vistara not only offers customers a chance to experience the all new Premium Economy class, they are also assured of greater comfort and ample space given Vistara’s fleet of A320 aircraft are fitted with 20% less seats vis-à-vis other single aisle aircraft in India. Vistara’s Premium Economy is a pioneering concept in the domestic skies and offers enhanced comfort and personalized experience at a competitive price. Other pioneering concepts being offered by the airline include a value based Frequent Flyer Programme Club Vistara and the soon-to-be introduced IntelliCabin™ IFE system in partnership with BAE systems. By the end of this calendar year, Vistara’s fleet size will grow to nine aircraft. In the coming months customers can look forward to flying to more destinations with Vistara as well as many exciting new offerings to its product and services portfolio including a state-of-art lounge at Delhi Airport by August 2015.
