Vistara (Tata-SIA) received it’s Air Operator Permit (AOP) from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), allowing the airline to begin commercial operations in the country. The AOP is the final step in a highly technical and complex compliance process to allow the airline to operate commercial flights. Headquartered in New Delhi, Vistara will begin operations with its fleet of brand new Airbus A320-200’s and will soon make an announcement on the start of sales, routes and schedules.
Over the last few months the Vistara team has been focused on complying with regulatory requirements for all procedural checks and finally the proving flights to qualify for the AOP.
