The Tata-Singapore Airlines joint-venture Vistara will commence flights on the Mumbai Dubai sector from August 21, 2019. This flight will operate on a schedule very similar to that operated by Jet Airways which suspended operations in April.
Dubai will be the second destination for Vistara. The airline will commence flights to its first international destination, Singapore, from New Delhi and Mumbai on the 6th and 7th of August respectively.
First airline to offer premium economy class
Unlike Singapore which will be operated by a two-class Boeing 737, Vistara will use its three-class Airbus A320neo on the Dubai route. Vistara will be the first airline to offer a Premium Economy class on a route between India and the United Arab Emirates.
Flight UK201 will depart Mumbai CSIA at 1625 (425pm) and arrive Dubai at 1815 (615pm).
Flight UK202 will depart Dubai at 1915 (715pm) and arrive Mumbai CSIA at 0015 (1215am) early the next morning.
Vistara is timing the flight to offer one-stop connections to/from New Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Goa, Hyderabad, and Kolkata, as well as Singapore.
