The glorious city of Jaipur continues to be listed amongst the world’s major tourist destinations, attracting people from across geographies. We are delighted to be able to contribute towards further elevating the tourism potential of the pink city by offering this connectivity to/from Mumbai to our customers. We are confident that Vistara’s world-class product and services, especially our premium cabins, will be greatly appreciated by travellers on the route.

said Vinod Kannan, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara.

Presently, Vistara operates scheduled flights to Udaipur from Mumbai and Delhi. In the past, the Indian full service carrier has operated winter seasonal flights to Jodhpur. However, it seems that Vistara will not return to Jodhpur this winter as the airline has not yet opened bookings for Jodhpur flights.

So, as of now, Vistara will serve two destinations in the Indian state of Rajasthan – Udaipur and Jaipur.

Vistara has long been absent from the Jaipur market. Prior to Jaipur, the airline chose Udaipur and Jodhpur for its network expansion. Jaipur is one of the biggest markets in India, primarily due to the tourism in the city and the surrounding areas, so it was surprising at that time to see Vistara not starting flights to Jaipur. It’s good to finally see Vistara expanding its network in Rajasthan.

The announcement from the airline comes after it recently acquired second position in India in terms of market share in July 2022. The airline has continuously been recording good load factors across its network and it seems that it is finally on a perfect path after so many ups and downs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vistara has been expanding more and more from Mumbai lately. In August 2022, the airline launched flights from Mumbai to Bangkok and from Mumbai to Jeddah while in May 2022, the airline launched flights to Ahmedabad from Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Vistara recently enhanced onboard wellness experience and also launched new wellness amenity kits for long-haul flights.
