Vistara on full throttle to fill Jet Airways gap; orders six aircraft for immediate delivery


Tata group’s Vistara airline has leased six aircraft for immediate addition to its fleet in order to fill the gap left in the aviation market after the grounding of rival Jet Airways, even as a much larger capacity expansion awaits.

Tata-Singapore Airlines joint venture Vistara will fly in four Boeing 737-800 NG this month itself and two Airbus A320 neo aircraft later this year, and will deploy them “to meet the sudden drop in the capacity in the market”, it said in a statement, without naming Jet Airways. Earlier, the sudden grounding of Naresh Goyal founded airline had resulted in a severe flight crunch in the Indian aviation market.

Vistara will lease these six aircraft from global leasing firm BOC Aviation. The airline already has an ongoing order for purchase and lease of 50 Airbus A320 neo and A321 neo aircraft, which will be delivered up to the year 2023.  Read More
