“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,” Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said.
“Bookings for these flights are now open on all channels including our website, Vistara’s iOS and Android mobile apps, through Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) and travel agents,” the company said.
Until now, Air India and Jet airways were the only two Indian airlines that were flying to London and with Jet airways now no more flying, Air India is the only one. But Vistara’s new route from Mumbai to London alongside Delhi is a strong sign that the demand is very high.
The competition is also very high on Mumbai-London route with British Airways and Virgin Atlantic both offering the customers a really good choice.
