Vistara CEO Vinod Kannan said the airline was excited to expand its presence in the Middle East with the addition of Muscat as the fourth city in the region.
“We are excited to expand our presence in the Middle East with the addition of Muscat as the fourth city in the region. Given the strong bilateral ties and the thriving trade and investment relations between India and Oman, this new route will further aid the growing traffic between the two countries. The capital city of Muscat continues to attract a significant number of expats, traders, business travellers, and high-end leisure travellers from India who will now have the choice of flying business class and premium economy on India’s best airline complemented with Vistara’s signature hospitality.”Vinod Kannan, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara
Mumbai is also emerging as Vistara’s new hub for Middle East operations, with Jeddah, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Muscat now all operating out of the busy financial capital. This frees up its Delhi slots to focus on long-haul traffic, with Delhi anyway seeing intense competition on all of its Middle Eastern routes.
Recently, Vistara has increased frequencies to Frankfurt and Paris starting November 10. The carrier will now operate six weekly flights between Delhi and Frankfurt, and five weekly flights between Delhi and Paris. Vistara has added these flights as its third Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner joined its fleet recently, following customisation of the leased aircraft.
