Full-service carrier Vistara on Wednesday said that it has received its 20th aircraft and its seventh Airbus A320neo powered by CFM engines.
According to the company, the latest addition marks the completion of its initial aircraft order “as planned at the early stages of setting up the airline”.
“This is not just another addition to our fleet, but a landmark one that signals Vistara’s arrival on the global map and marks the beginning of our next phase of growth,” Vistara CEO Leslie Thng said in a statement.
As per the statement, the airline plans to utilise the new aircraft to increase frequencies on existing routes to scale up operations in the domestic market, “while gearing up to start international operations soon”.
In addition to its initial order of 20 aircraft, Vistara had placed an order for two more A320neo aircraft that are expected to be delivered by June 2018 and will enable the airline’s international operations.
