Vistara and a JV of Tata and Singapore Airlines, inaugurated its daily service between Mumbai and Dubai. Dubai is Vistara’s second international destination in its network, with which the airline becomes the only one to offer the choice of Premium Economy class for travel between India and the UAE (in addition to Business and Economy class).

Mr. Himanshu Gupta, Chief Commissioner of Customs - Mumbai, Govt. of India, Ms. Sucheta, Deputy Commandment, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Govt. of India, and senior officials of GVK Mumbai International Airport (CSMIA) were part of the flight’s inaugural ceremony held at Mumbai Airport. Vistara was welcomed in Dubai with a special celebratory event organised by Dubai Airports in the presence of Mr. Eugene Barry, Executive Vice President - Commercial, Dubai Airports.

Vistara’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Leslie Thng, said on the occasion, “We’re very excited to start our service to Dubai, a city that’s home to millions of Indians, place of business for many Indian corporations and is also the most-preferred holiday destination for so many people. Now Dubai also has India’s best airline that’s committed to making a mark in global aviation with a world-class product and gold-standard service. With a great product and unmatched Indian hospitality, we bring something unique to the India-UAE route and are confident that travellers will enjoy flying the ‘new feeling’ with Vistara.”

Vistara celebrated the occasion with all the customers on the inaugural flight. To make their experience equally memorable, the airline presented them a gift bag of memorabilia and chocolates.

Vistara inaugurated its international operations earlier this month with daily flights to Singapore from Delhi and Mumbai. It is now poised to begin flying to the third international destination in its network, Bangkok, Thailand from 27 August 2019.

As the highest-rated Indian airline on Skytrax and TripAdvisor, and winner of several ‘Best Airline’ awards, Vistara has consistently raised the bar for operations and service delivery in the Indian aviation industry in a short span of little over four years. The airline now connects 27 destinations, operates over 1200 flights a week served by a fleet of 23 Airbus A320 and seven Boeing 737-800NG aircraft, and has flown more than 16 million customers since starting operations in 2015.
