Vistara, India’s full-service carrier and a joint venture of Tata Group and Singapore Airlines, will operate special, non-stop flights between Mumbai and London Heathrow from 16 January 2021. The airline will operate these special flights thrice a week – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, complementing its recently-launched service between Delhi and London Heathrow as part of the ‘transport bubble’ agreement between India and the UK.
The flights will be operated on the carrier’s brand-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, offering world-class service and hospitality in business, premium economy and economy cabins.
Leslie Thng, chief executive officer in Vistara, said: “We are delighted at the very positive response to our service between Delhi and London Heathrow which has encouraged us to further strengthen the network by adding connectivity from Mumbai as we see considerable demand between the two countries, and remain optimistic about the future. Vistara is well-positioned with its brand new fleet, world-class cabin products, award-winning service, and more importantly, the trust of our customers.”
The Vistara experience on its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner includes seats that recline into fully flat beds in business class, complimentary food and beverages in all cabins and cutting-edge in-flight entertainment covering 700+ hours of entertainment across films, TV shows, audio compilations and much more.
