Vistara aims for international flights by May

Singapore Airlines (SIA) expects to get more transit passengers from India when its local affiliate, Vistara, starts flying international, from May, according to David LIM, SIA’s general manager for India, reports the Economic Times.

“I think when they start flying to Singapore, the capacity deployed between us and Vistara would increase. So, when you have more capacity and more passengers flying to Singapore definitely it would add (to transit passengers),” he said.

Vistara plans to launch international operations in the second half of 2018, and achieve the minimum fleet requirement— 20 aircraft — by the end of March. The airline also informed the aviation ministry that it would like to fly international from May.
