Vistara inaugurates direct service between Delhi and Ranchi with double daily flights
Vistara, India’s finest full-service carrier and a joint venture of Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, inaugurated its direct service between Delhi and Ranchi on October 29, 2017, making it the fifth destination in Eastern India on the airline’s fast-growing network. Vistara will operate double daily direct flights between the two cities, providing a convenient same-day return option to travellers, making Vistara the only full-service carrier to offer such a service.
With convenient one-stop flights, Vistara also connects Ranchi to many other destinations via Delhi, including Mumbai, Srinagar, Jammu, Kochi and Hyderabad. Furthermore, as Vistara operates from the state-of-the-art Terminal 3 in Delhi, travellers will get to enjoy the superior experience of T3, and those connecting to and from international flights at Delhi will enjoy seamless same-terminal connections.
Jharkhand, with a population of over 30 million and home to 40 percent of the country’s natural reserves, is considered the mining capital of India and fosters several industries, including steel, cement, rubber and textiles. The state’s attraction of natural beauty coupled with its enormous growth potential makes its capital city, Ranchi, a perfect fit into Vistara’s network for business and leisure travellers alike.
Commenting on the launch of this service, Sanjiv Kapoor, chief strategy and commercial officer, Vistara said, “We are delighted to add Ranchi to our network and introduce the citizens of Jharkhand to a superior flying experience, as we continue to pioneer concepts and set new standards in service. Vistara’s start with double daily direct flights between the city and the national capital reflects our strong commitment to the market, and we’re confident that many business travellers and tourists will be delighted to fly their favourite airline to and from Ranchi.”
