After more than a year since its conception, India’s newest airline Vistara—a joint venture between Singapore Airlines and Indian conglomerate Tata Sons—has taken to the skies, having just flown its inaugural flight from Delhi to Mumbai on January 9. Deriving its name from a Sanskrit word meaning “limitless expanse,” Vistara is the third full-service airline in the country following Air India and Jet Airways. The newcomer begins its operations with two A320 aircrafts, which offer three cabin classes—Business, India’s first-ever Premium Economy, and Economy—servicing routes from its headquarters in New Delhi to Mumbai and Ahmedabad, and it plans to expand its fleet to 20 by 2017. Vistara also boasts comfortable, spacious seating; locally sourced, healthy inflight meals; a flexible loyalty program; and, through its partnership with Amadeus, a leader in travel technology, efficient check-in and boarding processes.
