After more thanÂ a year since its conception, India’s newest airline Vistaraâ€”a joint venture between Singapore Airlines and Indian conglomerate Tata Sonsâ€”has taken to the skies, having just flownÂ 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 inÂ the countryÂ following Air India and Jet Airways. The newcomer begins its operations with two A320 aircrafts, which offer three cabin classesâ€”Business, India’s first-ever Premium Economy, and Economyâ€”servicingÂ routes from its headquarters in New Delhi to Mumbai and Ahmedabad,Â and itÂ plans to expand its fleet to 20 by 2017. Vistara also boastsÂ comfortable, spacious seating; locally sourced, healthy inflight meals; a flexible loyalty program; and, through itsÂ partnership with Amadeus, a leader in travel technology, efficient check-in and boarding processes.
