Vistara takes off with its third Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner

 Thursday, August 11, 2022 


Vistara is preparing to receive its third newly leased Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, today announced more than 100% increase in frequency to/from Frankfurt and Paris. With effect from October 30, 2022, Vistara will increase the number of flights between Delhi and Frankfurt from three to six per week, while flights between Delhi and Paris would increase from two to five per week. 

Tickets are available through all channels, including its website, mobile app, OTAs, and other travel agencies.  Mr. Deepak Rajawat, Chief Commercial Officer of Vistara says that Europe has always been a key focus market since the very beginning. The decision to increase frequencies on certain sectors was long intended.

With its three-class cabin configuration, new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will give customers the choice of Business, Premium Economy, and Economy cabins. Fully-flat business class seats, each with direct aisle access, and a separate Premium Economy cabin is just a sneak-peek into Vistara’s focus on delivering an unparalleled flying experience. These include in-seat screens in all three cabins with High Definition (HD) Display offering a cutting-edge In-flight Entertainment system powered by Panasonic. 

The Tata Sons-Singapore Airlines previously operated roughly 50 aircraft, including a combination of Airbus and Boeing narrow-body aircraft and two 787-9s that were delivered before  the delivery halt. 

By the end of 2023, 20 additional aircraft will be needed for domestic and nearby international destinations. Although the deliveries were frozen since the coronavirus pandemic, earlier in March, Vistara CEO Vinod Kannan said that the airline was in talks with lessors for  long-haul aircraft to bridge the gap left by Boeing 787 deliveries. Even though it hasn’t yet turned a profit, the seven-year-old business considers increasing its global presence a “priority.” The airline’s losses decreased throughout the previous fiscal year, and Kannan claimed to have seen additional improvement up to the jump in gasoline prices in February. It will be challenging to balance greater fuel costs and the impact of the weakening rupee, he said, despite rising demand and higher airfares.
