Vistara Wait To Fly Overseas May Get Longer

Vistara, a joint venture between the Tatas and Singapore Airlines, may have to complete five years to fly international as the aviation ministry is not keen on giving permission due to an ongoing inquiry into the relaxation of overseas flying norms by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

“We are trying to understand as to how would a CBI inquiry into the relaxation of 5/20 impact any move to allow airlines to fly internationally under the 0/20 rule,” said a senior aviation ministry official, who did not want to be identified.

Earlier rules allowed Indian carriers to fly international only after a domestic flying experience of five years and after attaining a fleet of 20 aircraft. These rules were, however, relaxed in June 2016 to just 20 aircraft per fleet as part of the new civil aviation policy. Read more
