Exclusive video interview with G.M. Toh, Chief Commercial Officer, Vistara

On the eve of the Tata-Singapore Airlines joint venture airline Vistara commencing services to Bangalore, we had an opportunity for an exclusive interview with the airline’s Chief Commercial Officer Giam Ming Toh. Mr. Toh brings years of global experience to the table.

Watch Giam Ming talk to Bangalore Aviation on a variety of topics.

Vistara’s experiences in the first five months? What lessons have they learnt? What did they plan right? What plans did they have to modify? What is their business plan going forward? What is Vistara’s Plan B if the 5/20 rule is not removed? What steps are needed for India to achieve its projection aviation potential?

Curiously, we learnt that many of the tier 2 and 3 destinations like Bagdogra and Lucknow, are delivering high passenger loads in Vistara’s unique premium economy class. What value proposition is Vistara offering its customers to achieve this?

Please do share your thoughts at the end of the 32 minute video.
