Vistara may take off on October 15


Vistara may commence operations on October 15 commemorating J R D Tata’s flight from Karachi to Mumbai on the same date in 1932. J R D Tata’s flight carrying mail between the two cities was the first by an Indian company and opened up air link to peninsular India.

Vistara, a joint venture of Tata group and Singapore Airlines, is awaiting approval form Directorate General of Civil Aviation to start service and is expecting its first Airbus A320 this week. Tata Sons holds 51 percent in the airline and remainder is held by Singapore Airlines. Together the two companies have committed $ 100 million initial investment in the airline.

“We cannot comment on the (launch) date at this stage. While, we have a plan but it all depends on a series of processes we need to go through and progress on approvals,” a Vistara spokesperson said.
