Vistara fleet size exceeds 50 aircraft, 12 aircraft added in last 21 months

Even as Vistara navigated the aviation industry’s worst-ever crisis COVID-19, it continued to grow in a measured way towards its vision and long-term plans, expanding its fleet by over 25 per cent since April 2020, to have 51 aircraft as on date, it said.

Full-service carrier Vistara, which completed seven years of its procedure on January 9, said on Monday its armada has gotten 50 aircraft with over 12 planes included the most recent 21 months alone notwithstanding pandemic challenges. Moreover, Vistara said it has flown 30 million passengers since its launch on January 9, 2015 in the both domestic and overseas business sectors, the airline said in an assertion. The Delhi-based aircraft, which is a 51:49 joint venture between India’s salt-to-software conglomerate Tata Group and south-east Asian transporter Singapore Airlines, began flying on worldwide routes from August 2019.

Vistara fleet comprises Airbus A320, A320neo, A321neo, Boeing 737 and B787 planes.

Vistara has also significantly grown its global network to include seven new destinations across Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, the statement added.

According to the airline, it has registered a growth of 3.3 percentage points in market share, since July 2020, having grown from 4.2 per cent in July 2020 to 7.5 per cent in November 2021.

“Vistara entered the aviation market at a time when many in India believed that there was no place for another full-service airline, and yet, in a remarkably short span of time, it became ‘India’s best airline’. All of us at Vistara are truly grateful to our customers, partners and shareholders who have supported this dream of building a world-class airline that India can be proud of,” said Vinod Kannan, Vistara’s Chief Executive Officer, who took over the reins of the airline from Leslie Thng on January 1 this year.

Thng, who helmed Vistara for more than four years as its second CEO, returned to Singapore to take up a senior position at Singapore Airlines.

The airline said over the last two years, it has also introduced multiple product and service enhancements, including board WiFi connectivity, gate-to-gate service, fully-flat beds in Airbus A321neo aircraft and Boeing Dreamliner 787, among others.
