VISTARA Airlines likely to be permitted to operate Delhi – London flights

TATA  SIA Airlines Limited, operating as Vistara as an Indian full-service airline based in Gurugram,  has got the slots at the Heathrow airport in London. The flights between Delhi and London are likely to be announced in the next few days,” an industry source says. The Delhi-London flight is likely to operate thrice a week. A wide-body aircraft has a bigger fuel tank that allows it to operate long-haul flights. Vistara has 43 planes in its fleet, of which 41 are narrow-body aircraft like A320neo and B737-800NG. The full-service carrier is also likely to operate flights between India and Germany and India and France, another aviation industry source said, reports PTI. The probable destinations for these flights are Frankfurt and Paris respectively. The private carrier did not respond to the queries mailed to it. The Modi Government is committed to revive the aviation sector impacted due to the travel restrictions imposed in India and other countries following the Covid-19 pandemic. All airlines in India have opted for cost-reducing measures such as pay cuts, leave without pay and firing of employees in order to conserve cash. India resumed domestic passenger flights on May 25 after two months with a maximum of 45 percent of their pre-COVID domestic flights. However, they are yet to come out of the woods as employees are facing uncertainty about their future. Indira Gandhi Airport is the hub of the Tata  SIA Airlines operation as Vistara in India.
