Club Vistara will also be the first frequent flyer program in India to be a value based program, wherein loyalty points are accrued based on actual spend on the ticket fare rather than miles travelled.
Bookings will launch through direct channels like the company website (www.airvistara.com) and the Customer Service Centre (1860 108 9999) or the major Global Distribution Systems (GDS) used by Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) and other traditional travel agents.
