Vistara receives it’s Air Operator Permit

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.

Prasad Menon, Chairman, Vistara

“Receiving the AOP is a key milestone for Vistara. It is a reflection of the dedication and determination of our entire team and we are all looking forward to the first flight with excitement. We are aware of the expectations we have to live up to and look forward to shaping a success story in Indian Aviation with the realization of this dream.”

All our energies now are going to be concentrated towards fulfilling the Vistara brand promise. Our focus on customer service excellence coupled with unique product offerings will ensure seamless travel experience to our customers.”
