Vistara to Launch Direct Flights from Mumbai to London Starting June 1

Indian full-service carrier Vistara, a joint venture between the Tata group and Singapore Airlines, has announced that it will commence direct flight services between Mumbai and London Heathrow from June 1. The route will operate five times a week using a Dreamliner Boeing 787-9 aircraft, configured with three classes – business, premium economy, and economy.

The airline has also been operating direct flights between Delhi and London. The all-inclusive round-trip fares for Delhi-London-Delhi start at INR 67199, while the all-inclusive round-trip fares for London-Delhi-London start at GBP 559.

With the launch of the new Mumbai-London route, Vistara aims to expand its presence in the European market and increase its widebody fleet going forward. Vinod Kannan, CEO at Vistara, said, “Mumbai-London will be our fourth route to Europe after connecting Frankfurt, Paris and London with Delhi. This additional gateway also offers our customers more options and flexibility with their travel itineraries.”

Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Vistara has taken several steps to ensure a safe and comfortable travel experience for its passengers. Bookings for flights are gradually becoming available through all channels, including the airline’s website, mobile app, and travel agents.
