Vistara A320neo Seating Details

Vistara A320neo seating is organized across three cabin classes. The A320neo is equipped with 164 seats in total, 8 in business class, 24 in premium economy, and 132 in economy class.

Vistara orders

Vistara made an order for 50 Airbus A320neos and A321neos aircraft, as well as six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, in 2018 to strengthen its services, particularly internationally.

The A320neo would remain to play a significant part in the fleet, providing domestic and shorter international service. Vistara’s premium offering continues to flourish, handily outperforming local competitors and competing with international carriers.

Vistara to fly United States

Vistara intends to begin nonstop long-haul flights to the United States in October-December 2021 using Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

Vistara currently serves three international destinations: Doha, Frankfurt, and London, but also has the authorization to conduct specialized international flights inside the bilateral air bubble to eight more cities, including Dhaka, Dubai, Sharjah, Malé, and Tokyo. The airline is scheduled to begin operations in Tokyo in July.

Raised the fund by $110 million

As per statistics from the Reserve Bank of India’s site, Tata SIA Airlines Limited, the owners of Vistara airlines, received $110 million in May via External Commercial Borrowing (ECB).
