Vistara has announced the addition of Chennai to its steadily expanding network, making it the 22nd destination on the airline’s network.
Effective February 15, 2018, Vistara will operate a daily direct flight between Delhi and Chennai, and increase the frequency to twice daily from March 1, 2018, providing convenient same-day return options in both directions and onward via Delhi to other destinations across the country. Vistara will also connect Chennai to Port Blair with a daily direct flight between the two cities, effective March 1, 2018.
Mr. Leslie Thng, CEO, Vistara, said:
“We’re delighted to take the ‘new feeling of flying’ to Chennai, a city we have long wished to serve. Chennai represents modern India in a unique way, being a thriving metropolis; a business and cultural hub that appeals to corporate and leisure travellers alike. Additionally, given the high demand on the Chennai – Port Blair route due to deep economic and cultural ties, the addition of Vistara’s service will offer more choices to customers on both ends. Chennai truly is a landmark addition to our network, and there couldn’t be a better time for this than the start of the New Year. We are confident that travelers will be delighted to experience our award-winning service on the new routes.”
In a short span of three years, Vistara has achieved growth in its operations and has expanded its reach across the country. The airline serves 22 destinations with over 700 flights a week, operated by a fleet of 17 Airbus A320 aircraft.
