The new route commenced on 1 March 2015 and will now operate twice a daily direct from Delhi. One of the daily flights will depart the Indian capital at 1715, with the other running at either 0640 or 0845. The return flights will leave Hyderabad at 2000 and either 0930 or 1135.
“We are very pleased to extend our services on the Delhi-Hyderabad route which is immensely promising in terms of the passenger traffic it caters to,” said Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO of Vistara.
“Hyderabad is also a favourable destination for its low and pro- business ATF sales tax which was one of the key considerations for us to add this into our network.
“Hyderabad, being one of the most preferred business destinations in India, is a natural fit in our endeavour to contribute to the growing corporate travel in India. We believe that our customers will enjoy our enhanced connectivity and the world class travel experience we seek to provide to them,” he added.
Vistara launched its first flights in January 2015 and following the Hyderabad launch it now operates 81 weekly flights, including 34 on the Delhi-Mumbai route, 14 Delhi-Hyderabad, 13 Delhi-Ahmedabad, 13 Mumbai-Ahmedabad and seven Delhi-Goa.
All routes are operated using Vistara’s three-class Airbus A320 aircraft.
