Indian Carrier Vistara To Start Non-Stop Flights Between Delhi And Tokyo From June 16, 2021. Indian carrier Vistara mentioned on Monday that it will be starting non-stop flights from Delhi to Tokyo from June 16 under the air bubble arrangement formed between India and Japan.
The airline will fly weekly between the two capital cities, said in its statement. The booking for the flights is now open and passengers can book the return tickets starting at around ₹45,000 all-in.
Tata Group and Singapore Airlines joint venture Vistara mentioned that it will use its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft with three-class cabin configuration — economy, premium economy and business class.
The airline said that it has trained its cabin crew in Japanese language. Below is the tweet regarding the same :
“Far East has been an extremely important geography for our global expansion from the beginning for its tremendous growth potential. We are delighted to add Japan to our international network, under the travel bubble and look forward to providing the best of Indian hospitality while maintaining the highest standards of safety and hygiene for our customers on this sector,” Leslie Thng, chief executive officer, Vistara, mentioned.
The decision to launch a new international route comes after a fall in demand for air travel caused due to the second wave of COVID-19 in India.
