Mumbai is the second city to be connected to Bangkok by Vistara, with the other being the airline’s hub, Delhi. Vistara recently increased flights between both the capital cities to daily flights.

Recently, senior officials at Vistara revealed that they are looking at bolstering its network from Mumbai. It seems that the airline is already working on the plan, as it has already announced plans to launch flights between Mumbai and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Vistara will compete with Thai Airways, Air India, Indigo and GoFirst on flights between Mumbai and Bangkok.
