Vistara joins global airlines' body IATA ahead of int'l ops

Apr 26

Vistara has joined the 280-members global airlines' body IATA ahead of its plans to launch international operations by the second half of this year.

Till now, only two Indian carriers - Air India and Jet Airways - were part of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which has 280 airlines as its members, representing as much as 83 per cent of the total air traffic across 120 countries.

The membership will enable Vistara to collaborate with other international member airlines for codeshare and interline agreements, and provide a seamless travel through an extended global network to the passengers to and from India, the airline said in a release.

"We're extremely proud to join the international community of IATA members. This membership couldn't have come at a better time as we gear up to launch our international operations soon," Vistara chief executive officer Leslie Thng said in a release.

The Delhi-headquartered full service carrier had earlier in September last year completed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), a pre-requisite for an IATA membership.

"We welcome Vistara as IATA"s newest member airline. India is a key aviation market " it is expected to become the third largest aviation market by 2024. We look forward to working with Vistara in shaping IATA's priorities for India and the global aviation industry," IATA regional vice president for Asia Pacific Conrad Clifford said.

Vistara offers chef-on-board for business, premium economy fliers

May 01, 2018

In a first-of-its-kind initiative in the domestic skies, Vistara today launched a chef on-Board programme in partnership with the airline’s caterers, Taj SATS Air Catering Limited.

“Chef on-Board is an innovative and first of its kind initiative in India where uniformed chefs will take direct and instant customer feedback on the new menu introduced today across the network. To launch the program, renowned Taj SATS Group Chef Culinary Development Chef Rajeev Bansal was on board UK970 BOM-DEL and UK 977 DEL-BOM today to interact with the customers in Business and Premium Economy class, seeking their opinion and gauging their reaction to the newly introduced menu. Going forward, Chef Bansal will be available periodically on select flights across Vistara’s network to ensure Vistara’s in-flight catering remains the best food and beverage experience in the skies,” the airline said in a release.

“Vistara has developed an enviable reputation for its food, and with the Chef on-Board initiative in partnership with Taj SATS and the launch of our new menu, we intend to take the experience to a different level altogether. The new menu features all-time Indian, Asian, and Continental favourites, and is based on providing the kind of food choices one would look forward to when going out to eat with friends and family in a nice restaurant.

With Chef on-Board, we want to ensure that we get feedback directly from our customers to help us make the Vistara dining experience even more fulfilling and memorable,” Sanjiv Kapoor, Chief Strategy and Commercial officer of Vistara was quoted in the release.

Vistara’s 737Max thinking signals likely fleet change

May 23, 2018

Vistara is mulling a Boeing 737Max order, which indicates a possible fleet change by the airline from its current aircraft type of Airbus A320s, multiple sources within the industry and the airline told FE. Since Vistara’s current fleet of Airbus A320s is all leased, these aircraft can be returned.

Sources within the airline confirmed that pilots have already been initiated into Max training and the ones hired from SpiceJet have been told by the airline that they need not go in for a conversion training from Boeing to Airbus aircraft type, as SpiceJet is a Boeing fleet and any change of aircraft type needs a conversion training. Other sources indicated that computer-based training on the Max aircraft module is also under way even as it is sending its commercial pilot licence (CPL) holders for a Max training schedule.
