“Our long-haul routes, connecting Delhi with London Heathrow, Paris and Frankfurt have been very popular amongst our customers which gave us the confidence to offer similar connections from Mumbai as well.”
“This will be our second long-haul route from Mumbai, in addition to 5x weekly flights to London Heathrow, and we hope that our customers will appreciate having the option of flying with India’s best airline on this sector.”
“Over the past couple of years, we have launched several new international routes from Mumbai, especially to the Middle East.”
“This aligns perfectly with our strategy to position Mumbai as a vital hub for international travel”.
All eyes will be on Vistara to see how this new route to Frankfurt performs, and whether there is any scope to expand this further in the future.
