Vistara has now offered its renowned service to travellers bound to and from Kolkata. With effect from early June, the cultural capital, Kolkata will be directly connected to Delhi via double daily flights offering convenient same-day return options in both directions and onward via Delhi to other destinations such as Chandigarh, Goa, Kochi and Srinagar.

The airline has also announced the introduction of daily non-stop flights between Delhi and Kochi, to commence in the same month.

Flights are now open for sale through the airline’s website, mobile apps of iOS and Android, airport ticket offices, OTA, and travel agents.

Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara, said, “The City of Joy, Kolkata, encapsulates the essence of modern India as a key commercial and educational centre that attracts a large number of business visitors and tourists from India and around the world. With the addition of Kolkata in Vistara’s network and introduction of direct flights between Delhi and Kochi, shortly after the launch of Jammu, Srinagar, Kochi and Chandigarh, Vistara’s footprint in India continues to grow at a rapid pace further enhancing the base of airline’s loyal customers.”

With these additions, the airline will be operating a schedule of 455 flights per week, a 44% increase from 317 flights a week that it operated at the beginning of the year.

Sanjiv Kapoor, Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, Vistara, added, “We are confident that travellers on our new flights will welcome the opportunity to enjoy the quintessential Vistara experience that includes exceptional service from cabin crew trained by Singapore Airlines, three cabin classes of service to choose from, exceptional on-time performance, and complimentary meals and beverages in an ambience that evokes an international airline more than a domestic one.”
