Full-service carrier Vistara is going to commence two direct daily flights from Delhi to Kolkata and one Delhi- Kochi service from 10 June and 20 June respectively, expanding its base in India.

“The City of Joy, Kolkata, encapsulates the essence of modern India as a key commercial and educational centre that attracts a large number of business visitors and tourists from India and around the world. With the addition of Kolkata in Vistara’s network and introduction of direct flights between Delhi and Kochi, shortly after the launch of Jammu, Srinagar, Kochi and Chandigarh, Vistara’s footprint in India continues to grow at a rapid pace further enhancing the base of airline’s loyal customers,” said Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO of Vistara.

The airline is going to deploy Airbus A320 aircraft on this route.

International travellers will also benefit from same-terminal connections and international baggage allowance to global destinations via Vistara’s hub at T3 Delhi, through its interline partnerships with 12 global airlines.

With the addition of these flights, Vistara will be operating a schedule of 455 flights per week, a 44 per cent increase from 317 flights a week it operated at the start of the year, the airline said.

Sanjiv Kapoor, chief strategy and commercial officer at Vistara, added, “As a native of Kolkata, it gives me special pride to see this great, passionate, colorful, and multicultural city added to our rapidly growing network. We are confident that travelers on our new flights will welcome the opportunity to enjoy the quintessential Vistara experience that includes exceptional service from cabin crew trained by Singapore Airlines, three cabin classes of service to choose from, exceptional on-time performance, and complimentary meals and beverages in an ambience that evokes an international airline more than a domestic one.”

Vistara, a joint-venture between Tata Sons and Singapore International Airlines (SIA) recently inducted 10 aircraft into its fleet.
