Vistara has announced the
addition of Chennai to its network, making it the 22nd destination
on the airline’s network.
Effective February 15, 2018,
Vistara will operate a daily direct flight between Delhi and Chennai, and
increase the frequency to twice daily from March 1, 2018, providing
convenient same-day return options in both directions and onward via Delhi to
other destinations across the country. Vistara will also connect Chennai to
Port Blair with a daily direct flight between the two cities,
effective March 1, 2018.
As Vistara operates from the
state-of-the-art Terminal 3 in Delhi, travelers will enjoy a superior
experience, and those connecting to and from international flights at Delhi can
seamlessly proceed to international transfers for same-terminal connections.
Leslie Thng, CEO, Vistara, said,
“Chennai represents modern India in a unique way, being a thriving metropolis;
a business and cultural hub that appeals to corporate and leisure travellers
alike. Additionally, given the high demand on the Chennai – Port Blair route
due to deep economic and cultural ties, the addition of Vistara’s service will
offer more choices to customers on both ends.”
Vistara serves 22 destinations with over
700 flights a week, operated by a fleet of 17 Airbus A320 aircraft.
