Vistara to now offer multimodel itineraries on Deutsche Bahn train network


Full service carrier Vistara has entered into a partnership with WorldTicket that will enable providing connections to customers on Germany’s Deutsche Bahn train network.

The interline partnership with WorldTicket (W2), part of the 777 Travel Tech group, and the only authorised distributor for Europe’s largest railway operator, Deutsche Bahn, will enable the carrier to offer multimodal itineraries to its customers. According to a release, customers can seamlessly book air and rail travel throughout Germany and other European cities on a single itinerary.

“We are delighted to partner with WorldTicket and offer Deutsche Bahn’s extensive network of destinations within Germany and the rest of Europe to our customers. This partnership is aimed at making the travel experience of our customers simpler and seamless as they go beyond Frankfurt to other parts of Germany and Europe on a single itinerary.”

Deepak Rajawat, Chief Commercial Officer, Vistara

Vistara customers can now easily connect from any one of the 16,000 train stations in Germany to Frankfurt Airport and fly Vistarato Delhi, and vice versa. In addition to train stations across Germany, Vistara customers can also travel to and from Amsterdam (the Netherlands), Brussels (Belgium), and Zurich or Basel (Switzerland) on Deutsche Bahn’s extensive network.

The flight segment of the customer’s journey is being operated and marketed under Vistara’s ‘UK’ while the train segment is driven by Deutsche Bahn and marketed by ‘W2’. From the customer’s perspective, they will book a single itinerary that includes both flight and rail reservations and only need to check in separately for each segment.

Once passengers arrive at Frankfurt (FRA), they can clear immigration, collect their bags and proceed to the railway station at Frankfurt Airport to board their train. Vistara — a joint venture between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines — has a fleet of 52 aircraft.

Vistara received additional widebody capacity in November last year after receiving a leased Boeing 787. Having three Dreamliners in its fleet allowed it to ramp up its European frequencies, benefiting both Frankfurt and Paris routes.
