Vistara, India’s finest full-service carrier and a joint venture of Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, today inaugurated service to Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala) with a daily direct flight to and from Delhi. The inaugural flight from Delhi was welcomed at Thiruvananthapuram with a water cannon salute.
Customers from Thiruvananthapuram can also take convenient one-stop connections via Delhi to Amritsar, Chandigarh, Lucknow and Varanasi.
Vistara’s Chief Strategy Officer, Vinod Kannan, said on the occasion, “Starting services to Thiruvananthapuram demonstrates our commitment to the growing Kerala market. We now fly to the state’s two key cities – Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi - that are witnessing growth at remarkable pace in multiple areas including infrastructure, business, tourism and trade. This makes a strong business case for a full-service carrier like Vistara. Besides, Thiruvananthapuram has today become a top choice for start-ups in setting up their headquarters, and a large number of our customers today are young entrepreneurs and SME owners as well. There is a clear need for a five-star airline like Vistara that provides world-class service to travellers in this market, and we’re delighted to bring it to them.”
Vistara is India’s highest-rated airline on Skytrax and TripAdvisor and the winner of several ‘Best Airline’ awards. It has consistently raised the bar for operations and service delivery in the Indian aviation industry in a short span of time to be today known as India’s only five-star airline (per 2020 Apex Official Airline Ratring™). Vistara continues to grow rapidly across India and abroad, as it is poised to induct as many as 56 narrow-body and wide-body aircraft over the next four years, including 50 aircraft from the Airbus A320neo family for domestic and international short and medium-haul operations and 6 Boeing B787-9 for long-haul international operations.
