Club Vistara announced a wide range of changes today, which included some perks for Platinum members and Gold members, but essentially took away a lot of the value from the programme in a broad reorganisation of their routes where many routes now require as much as double points for upgrades and so on. Here is an update.
It’s time to fly the new feeling abroad. Vistara is launching regional international operations next month, flying to Singapore from August 6, 2019. Flights will launch from Delhi and Mumbai in quick succession and will be daily operated.
Vistara is offering a new promotion for July 2019, August 2019 and September 2019. Making four flights a month will get you another bonus with Vistara, worth 1000 Club Vistara points per month.
Vistara and United have entered into a codeshare agreement. United will place its UA code on 20 flights operated by Vistara.
Vistara has further expanded its presence in Mumbai by adding flights to Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Kolkata. With this expansion, Vistara has added 21 new flights into and out of Mumbai using Jet Airways slots.
Vistara has started inducting 737NG in its fleet with two of them already flying. Vistara has added new flights from Mumbai using the 737s.
Vistara is inducting 4 Boeing 737s and 1 all-economy A320neo at the moment. Vistara is adding new routes from Delhi and Mumbai as a result of this move. More coming soon.
Vistara is taking 10 ex-Jet Airways 737s, out of which 2 have already joined its fleet. Vistara is planning to add 3 new destinations out of Mumbai in June 2019.
The Vistara Boeing 737 operations are coming in the days ahead. The airline is scheduled to induct 4 of these aircraft in their fleet in the coming week. Routes, where these will be placed, are yet to be announced.
Next month, Vinod Kannan will join Vistara as the new CSO, coming in from Scoot. Sanjiv Kapoor will continue to be Vistara’s CCO. This move is made in line with Vistara getting all set to fly abroad.
