India’s newest airline Vistara is set to start operations after receiving its air operator permit.
The carrier, which is headquartered in New Delhi, is a joint venture between Tata and Singapore Airlines and aims to be the “finest full service carrier in India”.
Vistara will operate a fleet of 20 new A320s leased from BOC Aviation, the first of which was delivered on September 25. Prasad Menon, chairman of Vistara, said: “We are aware of the expectations we have to live up to and look forward to shaping a success story in Indian aviation.”
An announcement detailing Vistara’s planned routes, schedules and ticket sales is expected soon.
