Flights will commence on 21 October 2015, operating daily direct from Delhi using Vistara’s three-class Airbus A320 aircraft.
“Varanasi is awe inspiring and a symbol of spiritualism that has attracted Indians as well as international tourists for years,” said Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO of Vistara.
“The addition of Varanasi to our network perfectly complements Vistara’s versatile ecosystem that now offers leisure, corporate, and pilgrimage options. With the positive feedback of our customers Vistara has established itself as a preferred brand in a short period of time.”
Varanasi will become Vistara’s 12th Indian destination, and closely follows the launch of flights to Bhubaneswar, which are due to commence on 1 October. It will also become the airline’s second destination in the state of Uttar Pradesh, after Lucknow.
Vistara is a joint venture between Singapore Airlines and Tata Sons.
