Vistara to launch flights between Mumbai and Ahmedabad; to resume flights to Malé

Vistara has announced that it will launch flights between Mumbai and Ahmedabad. The airline will also resume flights to Malé, Maldives later this month.

Mumbai-Ahmedabad flights

Starting 15th May 2022 and running through 29th October 2022, Vistara will operate daily flights between Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport and Ahmedabad’s Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport. From 15th May to 31st May, the airline will operate double daily flights with the following schedule:

From 31st May 2022, Vistara will operate 3-daily flights between the two cities. The schedule of the third flight is:

  • Mumbai-Ahmedabad
  • Departure time: 22:35
  • Arrival time: 23:50

All of these flights will be operated by Vistara’s A320 aircraft featuring 8 Business Class seats, 24 Premium Economy seats and 132 standard Economy Class seats.

Vistara (except SpiceJet and Air Asia India) is the only major Indian airline that does not have any flights between Mumbai and Ahmedabad presently. Vistara will face some tough competition on this route.

Indigo operates up to 6 daily flights on this route whereas GoFIRST operates up to 5 daily flights on this route. Air India has a single daily flight on this route. Once Vistara starts flights between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, SpiceJet and Air Asia India will be the only major airlines to not have a flight between the two cities.
