Vistara to start non-stop flights between Delhi and Tokyo


PUNE: Authorities said that the airline will fly once a week between the two capital cities under India’s travel bubble agreement with Japan. The airline will use its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft with a three-class cabin configuration to serve the route. This makes Vistara the only Indian carrier to offer the choice of flying premium economy class in addition to Business and Economy cabins.
Vistara has also trained its cabin crew in the Japanese language to extend the warmth of true Indian hospitality to travellers from Japan, authorities added.
Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said, “The Far East has been extremely important geography for our global expansion from the beginning for its tremendous growth potential. We are delighted to add Japan to our international network, under the travel bubble and look forward to providing the best of Indian hospitality while maintaining the highest standards of safety and hygiene for our customers in this sector.”
Bookings for the flights are being progressively opened on all channels, including the website of the airline, mobile app, and travel agents. The airline will accept all eligible customers meeting visa/entry requirements in both countries, as specified by the respective government bodies.
