“We’re delighted to enter another new geography with service to Bangkok, one of [the] world’s most-visited cities with immense potential to further grow tourism as well as business. With Vistara, we introduce India’s best airline to Bangkok that’s committed to making a mark in global aviation with its world-class product and impeccable service,” said Vistara’s CEO Leslie Thng.
An A320neo was used on the inaugural flight and will be deployed on all flights on this route. The aircraft features a three class cabin configuration that includes premium economy, cusiness class and economy class. Vistara says that it’s the only airline to offer the choice of premium economy class for travel between India and Thailand.
The aircraft has a total of eight seats in Business class, 24 in premium economy and 132 in economy class. The width, pitch, and recline of the business class seats are 22.6 inches, 41 inches and seven inches respectively.
Vistara celebrated the occasion by giving each passenger a gift bag of memorabilia and chocolates during the flight. The Tourism Authority of Thailand extended a traditional Thai welcome to all Vistara customers as well, according to the airline.
“Customers from Bangkok can also take convenient onward connections on Vistara to several destinations within India including Amritsar, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai,” the airline said in a press release.
The airline now connects 27 destinations with a fleet of 23 Airbus A320 and eight Boeing 737-800NG aircraft.
Earlier this month, Vistara launched its first international flight services to Singapore from Delhi and Mumbai. The airline also signed an agreement with Singapore Airlines (SIA) and its regional arm, Silkair to expand codesharing to international routes.
Vistara is a joint venture between Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Indian company Tata Sons.
