Vistara Has Over 51 Aircraft in its Fleet
It hasn’t been long since Vistara started flying on the international routes. Just a few months back before the pandemic hit the world, Vistara had started international flights from August 2019. As of today, the airline has over 51 aircraft and the addition of new aircraft even during the COVID-19 pandemic shows that Vistara is very serious about its long-term plans and is working to ensure that it stays on course.
The airline has multiple Airbus A320, A320neo, A321neo, Boeing 737, and Boeing B787 aircraft. Vistara has been very focused on its international business as the airline is adding new foreign destinations to its portfolio on a regular.
In a very short span of time, Vistara has been able to achieve what most of the airlines haven’t been able to in decades. In a market such as India which is mostly price-sensitive, Vistara, a fine service airline could make its place and identity.
