- Vistara on 1 March became the fifth carrier to offer flights on the 1,267-kilometre route between Delhi (DEL) and Hyderabad (HYD). Vistara will operate twice-daily flights with its A320s. The route is already served by IndiGo (seven daily flights), Air India (five daily flights), SpiceJet (10 weekly flights) and Jet Airways (daily flights). Mr Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara said: “We are very pleased to extend our services on the Delhi-Hyderabad route, which is immensely promising in terms of the passenger traffic it caters to. Hyderabad is also a favourable destination for its low and pro-business ATF sales tax, which was one of the key considerations for us to add this into our network. Hyderabad, being one of the most preferred business destinations in India, is a natural fit in our endeavour to contribute to the growing corporate travel in India. We believe that our customers will enjoy our enhanced connectivity and the world class travel experience we seek to provide to them.” Vistara, which launched its first flight on 9 January, has already grown its fleet to five aircraft and now operates 162 weekly flights across a network of five routes.
