The Tata Sons Group and Singapore Airlines have tied-up together to launch an airline carrier brand called “Vistara”. The carrier is headquartered in Delhi and is to operate as a fully serviced airline. It is slated to begin operations this October. The airline models that will be operating for this joint venture are to be well stocked on board with the latest technology.
The airline expects its first airline–Airbus A320-200 to be delivered in September and 5 more to add to its growing fleet by the end of this year. The numbers are expected to escalate to 20 aircrafts over the next 5 years. The airline alliance venture is expected to boost India’s aviation industry by leaps and bounds.
Foreseeing that the airline shall commence operations in October, the uniforms of the cabin crew and other airline staff have been unveiled. “Vistara” is a Sanskrit word which translates to “limitless expanse”. It is symbolic of the vast expanse of the skies and the logo is inspired by “yantra”, a mathematical symbol for the expansive universe.
The objective of the airline can be summed up in the agenda that was laid forth by the CEO, Phee Teik Yeoh–to provide a full service airline with personalized services. The route network will be finalized based on the clear aim to connect major Indian cities. The airline will operate in 5 cities initially and will connect Delhi with major Indian cities. The airline hopes to cover 11 cities through 87 weekly flights within the subsequent year.
