Vistara was one of the early ones to take advantage of Jet Airways slots being made available. They expanded out of Mumbai by adding a few flights to Bangalore, Hyderabad, Goa and Kolkata.
Vistara is onboarding 4 ex-Jet Airways 737 aircraft and will take up to 10 of them. Apart from this, Vistara is also adding an all-economy A320neo, VT-TNN which flew for erstwhile WOW air. While one Boeing 737-800, VT-TGB is already inducted into the fleet, other three are going to join soon. VT-TGA & VT-TGD have already done some test flights.
Vistara has announced additional flights from Delhi which will be operated by a Boeing 737-800 (to be based there) from June 5, 2019.

With this, Vistara will offer 4x daily flights on Delhi-Chandigarh route and will be a dominant player in the market. Apart from this, Vistara will now offer 2x daily each on Delhi-Amritsar and Delhi-Guwahati route but no same day return flights.
We know that Vistara will add three new sectors from Mumbai including Chennai apart from adding more frequencies on existing routes like Hyderabad, Goa and so-on. Vistara has also started putting flights out on these routes, but not opened it up for the full schedule yet, perhaps because the aircraft is still under induction and hence a more long term schedule is yet to be determined. Currently, open for June 5 to 7 with an aircraft to be based in Mumbai. Here is the schedule:
