    October 26, 2019

    Vistara, India’s full-service carrier and a joint venture of Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, on Friday announced a daily (except Wednesdays) direct service to Colombo, Sri Lanka from November 25 onwards, making it the fourth international destination in its fast-expanding network.

    The airline will fly its Airbus A320neo aircraft with three-class cabin configuration between Mumbai and Colombo making Vistara the first airline to offer the choice of Premium Economy class for travel on the India and Sri Lanka route, in addition to Economy and Business Class. Customers can also take convenient one-stop connections to/from other cities beyond Mumbai, the airline said in a public announcement.

    Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said, “Sri Lanka is a very promising destination for Vistara, given the growth it continues to record in trade and tourism, especially as India is the largest tourism source market for Sri Lanka. As we bring India’s only five-star airline on the India-Sri Lanka route, we are confident that our entry will further fuel the travel appetite among people.”

    Bookings for flights to and from Colombo are progressively opened on all channels, including Vistara’s website, Vistara’s iOS and Android mobile apps, and through Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) and travel agents.

    The statement said that 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.
