Vistara begins operations from Hyderabad

Today, Vistara (Tata-SIA) operated it’s first flight from Hyderabad to New Delhi. The airline started its operations on 9th January 2015 from Delhi to Mumbai. (Read our trip report from the inaugural flight). The airline now serves five cities, with Goa being its recent addition on 20th February. Vistara will operate double daily return flights between Delhi and Hyderabad.

Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara

“We are very pleased to extend our services on the Delhi-Hyderabad route which is immensely promising in terms of the passenger traffic it caters to. Hyderabad is also a favourable destination for its low and pro- business ATF sales tax which was one of the key considerations for us to add this into our network. We would like to thank GMR for their support and also commend their exemplary work due to which the Hyderabad airport has been ranked as one of the top three airports in the world for the sixth consecutive year. Hyderabad, being one of the most preferred business destinations in India, is a natural fit in our endeavour to contribute to the growing corporate travel in India. We believe that our customers will enjoy our enhanced connectivity and the world class travel experience we seek to provide to them.”

“On behalf of GHIAL, I welcome Vistara to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad. I am extremely happy about the new air service to Delhi and I am sure that this new full-service airline will give additional options to business and leisure travelers between Hyderabad and Delhi. RGIA offers unmatched competitive advantages to airlines in terms of efficient and quick turnarounds and world-class airside infrastructure. Further, underscoring RGIA’s proven track record of high service standards and passenger facilities, Vistara has chosen RGI Airport, Hyderabad as one of their preferred destinations. The airport’s high service quality levels are also evident from the fact that RGIA has been voted amongst the Top 3 airports in the world (5 to 15 Million Passenger Per Annum category) for six consecutive years by Airport Council International for Airport Service Quality. I congratulate Vistara on the launch of their maiden service to RGIA. We are committed to work closely with our new partner, Vistara to ensure that we provide the best possible experience to our passengers and add many new services in the near future”.
