In May of this year, Vistara upped its frequencies on several of its international route pairings, this includes Delhi-London and Mumbai-Singapore daily flights.

Recently, the airline also increased its frequencies to Bangkok from Delhi and inaugurated the Mumbai to Bangkok route and Mumbai to Jeddah. 

The airline’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner comes with a selection of three classes, Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy class. The new long-haul jet will have a fully-flat business class seat like Air India but offers all direct access. Vistara is also the first Indian airline to have a Premium Economy class. 

Vistara Airlines’ cabin experience also features an unrivalled flying experience. This includes an in-seat screen in all three award-winning cabins. It is no surprise that Vistara Airlines is one of India’s highest-rated airlines on Skytrax and TripAdvisor, and claimed the title of the ‘Best Airline’ in India. The airline is praised for having high hygienic standards and cabin cleanliness. 

The airline performed its first flight seven years ago and has set a new standard for airlines in India. It has became the country’s most beloved airline and has carried 35 million travellers to date.
