Vistara announced the addition of Chandigarh to its expanding network effective May 2, 2016.
With this route launch, Vistara’s network will cover 16 destinations across India. Chandigarh, considered one of the best-planned cities in India with world-renowned architecture, is Vistara’s sixth destination in North India after Jammu, Srinagar, Delhi, Lucknow and Varanasi.
The daily service will directly connect Chandigarh to both Delhi and Hyderabad (with same aircraft service between Chandigarh and Hyderabad via Delhi), and will also offer convenient connections via Delhi between Chandigarh and Bengaluru, Pune, Mumbai, Bhubaneswar and Ahmedabad.
Speaking on the launch of its new destination, Mr Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara said, “ Chandigarh is a key market in North India and a base for significant business and tourism in the region and we are glad to connect to this beautiful city. The city showcases immense potential as its proximity to mountains, robust infrastructure, growing business prospective and good quality of life, ultimately attracts more tourists and premium segment travellers. Not only will we connect Chandigarh directly to Delhi and Hyderabad and to five other cities domestically, international traffic from the city will also be connected via our hub at T3 Delhi making it a convenient connection for them to travel overseas, even through our interline partnerships with 12 international airlines. Customers on this route will enjoy the “new feeling” and world class travel experience that Vistara is already known for.”
This latest addition to Vistara’s network reflects the airline’s phase of growth with a focus on scaling up operations and strengthening the value proposition to suit customers’ demand. The month of April will also see Vistara launch services to Srinagar, Jammu, and Kochi. With addition of these services the total number of weekly flights offered by the airline will increase to ~400 and further reiterate the airline’s commitment to Indian market. With plans of further popularizing its offerings, Vistara has recently inaugurated their signature lounge at T3 at Delhi International Airport providing a truly world class experience to its customers.
