Vistara, represented in Ireland by Jens Bachmann AVIAREPS, is India’s finest full-service carrier and a JV of Tata group and Singapore Airlines. Today, the airline took delivery of its first wide-body aircraft, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, marking a significant milestone for India’s only five-star airline. The new aircraft departed Boeing’s Everett Delivery Center and arrived in India on 29 February 2020 and makes Vistara India’s first airline to fly Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.


Mr. Leslie Thng (Vistara CEO) said, “This aircraft delivery marks a new phase of growth for Vistara and unlocks our potential to become one of world’s best airlines. The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is one of the world’s most technologically advanced aircraft. We are delighted to add it to our growing fleet with a brand new wide-body product designed to global standards, hence offering the ‘new feeling of flying’ to our customers across the world.”


“Vistara has shown their commitment to bringing a full-service luxury flying experience to the growing Indian market and we are honoured they chose the 787 Dreamliner to inaugurate their widebody operations and drive their global growth. Vistara’s faith and confidence in the Dreamliner speaks to the airplane’s unparalleled fuel efficiency, range flexibility and ability to create new city pairs, allowing the airline to connect India domestically, regionally and beyond,” said Mr. Ihssane Mounir 9Senior VP Commercial Sales & Marketing The Boeing Company).


The new aircraft is the first of six that Vistara purchased from Boeing. The second Vistara Dreamliner is currently on the production line and will be delivered soon.


“We will use the Boeing 787 Dreamliners to soon begin flying long-haul routes, providing authentic Indian hospitality to customers in a modern, global setting,” added Mr. Thng.


Vistara’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner comes with 299 seats in three-class cabin configuration with a choice of Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins. Vistara’s Dreamliners feature lie-flat business class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration that gives direct aisle access to each Business Class passenger, and a separate Premium Economy cabin will offer seats in a 2-3-2 configuration. Vistara’s Dreamliners come with a host of other features in all three cabins, thoughtfully put together to reflect Vistara’s focus on delivering an unparalleled flying experience. These include in-seat TVs in all three cabins with High Definition (HD) Display offering a cutting-edge experience.
