Air Vistara starts operating flights on Mumbai-Malé route


Vistara on Wednesday operated its inaugural flight on the Mumbai-Male route, according to a company statement.

The inaugural flight departed from the Mumbai airport at 10.10 am, the airline’s statement noted.

“The airline will fly three times a week on the route under India’s transport bubble agreement with the Republic of Maldives,” the statement noted.
Air Vistara also tweeted the same from their official Twitter handle. The tweet quotes, “We are excited to extend our international network to the gorgeous Maldives. Malé is now a Vistara city! #FlyHigher #FlyTheNewFeeling #MaléOnVistara”.

Commenting on the launch of the new routes, Mr. Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said, “Our new service to the Maldives will give travellers greater access to one of India’s most-preferred holiday destinations. We are delighted at the opportunity of taking India’s Best Airline to more places and offering the very best of air travel to people flying between India and the Maldives while maintaining the highest standards of safety and hygiene.”
Scheduled international passenger flights continue to remain suspended in India since March 23 last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, special international flights have been operating since July last year under air bubble arrangements formed with more than 24 countries.
