Vistara has received three new Airbus A320neo aircraft, which forms a part of its latest order of 50 aircraft from the Airbus A320neo family, placed last year in July. The new aircraft feature improved performance and cabin features including in-seat AC power outlet and Personal Electronic Device (PED) holders.

The business class seats in the new aircraft are fitted with in-seat AC power outlet, USB charging port, height-adjustable armrests, a cocktail table extension to the meal tray and an additional literature pocket. Similarly, in premium economy and economy class cabins, all seats get USB charging ports, PED holders and an additional literature pocket.

In addition to this, the new aircraft come with higher range capability, thereby enabling Vistara to fly them on longer international routes.

Expressing his views on the new aircraft, Leslie Thng, chief executive officer, Vistara, said, “The cabins of our new A320neo aircraft have been designed with even greater thought to passenger comfort and convenience. The charging ports and PED holders are simple, yet very useful conveniences that we are happy to provide to our customers on all our new A320neo aircraft that will be deployed on domestic as well as international routes. This will also help our customers to use our wireless in-flight entertainment streaming service, ‘Vistara World’, to access their favourite movies, TV shows, music, etc. conveniently without having to worry about their phone battery strengths.

“The new seats will further complement the comfort and joy of flying India’s only five-star airline for our customers.”

Effective from November 24, 2019, Vistara will deploy new aircraft on the Delhi-Singapore and Mumbai-Singapore routes, replacing the Boeing 737-800NG which is being currently used.
