Vistara announces first new destinations

13 Mar 2015 by Clement Huang

Vistara has announced its first new route since the airline began operations earlier this year.

As expected, the Singapore Airlines and Tata Sons joint venture airline is prioritising the expansion of its domestic operations ahead of rolling out international flights, and will begin serving Guwahati and Bagdogra from April 1.

Guwahati is expected to be popular with business travellers. As one of the fastest developing cities in the country, Guwahati is a major metropolis in eastern India with a prominent river port. It has established itself as an important administrative and trading centre.

Also in East India, Bagdogra is a town in the Darjeeling district of the West Bengal state. The town is home to Bagdogra Airport – a major stop in the region for flights connecting to Kolkata, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Guwahati.

Vistara will operate a single daily Delhi–Guwahati–Bagdogra–Delhi triangle service with the A320. The narrow-body aircraft has been configured with a three-class cabin layout, and offers 16 seats in business, 36 in premium economy, and 96 in economy. For a detailed report of each individual cabin class, see here.

Flight UK717 will take off from Delhi at 1225 daily and arrive in Guwahati at 1440. Following a short layover, the aircraft will take off again at 1520 and touch down in Bagdogra at 1620. The final leg of the journey will see flight UK717 depart once again at 1655 before returning back to Delhi at 1910.
